General Policies and Procedures

Note for Academic Employees

Academic employees who are on 9 month (or academic year) appointments do not accrue vacation/sick time and thus do not need to submit timesheets. However, 11-month appointees DO accrue vacation at the rate of 16 hours per month (and sick leave at 8 hours per month) and MUST submit timesheets for their absences. Titles that fall under this category include: Research Scientist, Project Scientist, and Research Specialist. It is both the employee and faculty supervisor's responsibility to ensure that timesheets are submitted in a timely manner.
