Official Closings

During an official emergency closing, it is anticipated that some employees in the Office of Facilities, Public Safety, and the Health Center will be "essential." In the event of a College closing, "essential" personnel are expected to report to work or remain at work. When an emergency closing is in effect, "essential" employees who report to work will be compensated at their regular rate and will receive an additional one and one-half times their regular rate for all hours worked during the first three days the College is officially closed.
