Policy

Adelphi University recognizes that personal reasons may necessitate an employee’s absence from work. The University provides paid personal days to employees for religious, or other personal reasons.

All full-time and part-time non-union employees (working twenty-five hours or more per week on a regularly scheduled basis) are covered. Personal days for union represented employees are covered in the applicable collective bargaining agreement.

Full-time non-union employees receive four (4) personal days per academic year. Personal days are prorated for new hires and for employees working part-time or less than a 12 month basis. Unused personal days may not be carried over to the next fiscal year. Upon termination of employment employees are not paid for personal days not taken. Hourly employees are not entitled to paid personal days.

Supervisors should inform employees of the approval and reporting process for personal days.
