The College grants benefits eligible staff members the equivalent of two days of personal leave each calendar year.
Personal leave days are granted on January 1st of each year and must be used in the year granted. Personal leave days do not accumulate, roll over from year-to-year, nor constitute a cash reserve payable upon termination of employment.
Personal leave days are similar in nature to vacation days, but give staff members more discretion in taking care of their personal affairs.
See Section 404, Bates College Employee Handbook for more details on Personal Leave.
