XII. Major Medical Leave

All full-time staff working a minimum of 40 hours per week accrues one day of major medical leave per month or 12 days per year, accumulating up to a cap of 3 months (up to 65 business days or 90 calendar days) after which the long-term disability coverage becomes effective. Major medical leave is pro-rated according to the number of months remaining in the leave year for new employees after the three-month probationary period expires. Use of this leave requires approval from the Vice President or Director for Human Resources. Additional information concerning this benefit is available through the Office of Human Resources. Refer to the Employee Handbook – Major Medical Leave section for more details.

XIII. General Leave

General leave for all full-time employees is time off with pay for vacation or personal needs, including sick days that are not part of a major medical issue. Beyond securing the permission of the supervisor to take the time off, employees do not need to specify the reasons for taking the leave. All employees are expected to comply with the directions of the Office of Human Resources for annual documentation and reporting of the use of general leave.

All exempt employees receive 20 days of general leave per year, after the three month probationary period expires, with the first year of general leave pro-rated according to the number of months remaining in the leave year. Exempt employees receive 25 days of general leave per year after their fifth year of employment. This leave does not accumulate; any balance remaining in any given year extinguishes upon the employee’s separation from Trinity, and such left-over leave time is not paid. Supervisors are responsible for approving leave requests.

Non-exempt employees accrue  (4.615 hours) of general leave time in each pay period, up to a maximum of 15 days or 120 hours. The maximum increases to 20 days after five full years of service. Non-exempt employees must have the permission of their supervisor to take general leave, and failure to secure prior permission will result in unpaid leave and may incur dismissal. Refer to the Employee Handbook – General Leave section for more details.
