Announcements

Paid Leave Procedures for Teaching and Non-Teaching Adjuncts

To: Deans, Directors, Chairs, and Department Heads

From: Carolene George, Deputy Director of Human Resources

I write to remind you that adjuncts may be excused for personal illness or personal emergencies including religious observance, death in the immediate family or similar personal needs which cannot be postponed for a period of 1/15 of the total number of clock hours in the particular session or semester.

· Non-Teaching Adjuncts and Adjunct College Laboratory Technicians: You may be excused for 1/15 of the total number of clock hours in the particular semester you teach. For example, for teaching 225 hours a semester you will excused for 15 hours.

· Teaching Adjuncts: You may be excused for 1/15 of the total number of clock hours in the particular semester you teach. For example, if you teach one three hour course you may be excused for three hours during the semester, without loss of pay.

Requests for such leave, where possible, must be made in advance, in writing. If it is not possible to make such a request in advance, the department chairperson or supervisor should be informed as soon as possible. The reason provided must be satisfactory and signed off by the chairperson or supervisor. This request must be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources (OHR).

OHR will keep track and charge the time accordingly. It is advisable for supervisors to also keep track of time out, so that an adjunct does not go over the time allowed each semester. If an adjunct goes over the hours allowed, an e-PAF (only necessary for teaching adjuncts) must be prepared to deduct any hours over the allowed used for the semester.

If you have any questions, please contact me at Carolene.George@baruch.cuny.edu or 646-660-6590.
