17.10 Computation of Salary in the Event of Absence
- Academic Year Appointments. Unless otherwise indicated in the appointment record, faculty and staff members appointed on an academic year basis, who serve only part of the academic year, receive compensation equivalent to their academic year salary multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the actual days served, and the denominator of which is the number of service days in the academic year. For the purpose of this computation, service days shall not include Saturdays, Sundays, or days on which the University is officially closed. In computing compensation for a portion of an academic year, the minimum number of service days shall begin three working days before the beginning of classes in the fall semester and end on the spring commencement day of the college calendar.
As indicated in III-17.9, this does not imply that professional services may not be expected of faculty and staff members for classes or other scheduled events at any time during the academic year.
- Academic Semester Appointments. In the computation of compensation for appointments for one semester, the minimum number of service days per semester shall begin three working days before the beginning of classes in the fall semester and end on the spring commencement day of the college calendar. Compensation for less than one semester shall be computed on the basis of the percentage of service days rendered to the total number of service days in that academic semester.
- Appointees on a Monthly or Twelve-Month Basis. When staff members appointed on a twelve-month basis or on a month-to-month basis are absent without pay for a part of the month in which they are employed, the compensation for the actual days worked in the month shall be computed by multiplying their monthly salary rate by a fraction, the numerator of which is the actual days worked by the staff member in that month, and the denominator of which is the total working days in that month. In computing compensation, working days will include holidays celebrated on weekdays, Monday through Friday, and will exclude Saturdays and Sundays.
