The Company provides its staff with personal days to meet personal and individual needs. Full-time and part-time employees with benefits may take three personal days per calendar year. Personal days must be approved in advance, except in cases of emergency. Days taken off the day before or the day after paid holidays will not be recognized as personal days and no payment will be made for them.
No personal days may be taken during the first six (6) months of employment. You may not carry over personal days into the next calendar year. Employees are not paid for unused personal days. Personal days may not be taken in units of less than one-half of a day.
