Personal Emergency Day and Float Time
The personal day policy has been changed to the “Personal Emergency Leave” and “Vacation and Float time” policies.
Personal days have been renamed 'Float' and are essentially two additional days of vacation (accrued as per FTE). It is used the same as a Vacation or Holiday and requires the approval of your manager. It shows up as 'Float Balance' in ExpressNet. Please see the policy on Vacation and Float Time' for more information.
Personal Emergency Days
Personal Emergency Leaves are up to two paid days in a calender year to be used for personal emergencies as defined in the policy. If you need to take a personal emergency day, you must contact Eloise with a brief reason as to why. Please review the policy on “Personal Emergency Leave” for details.
Please refer to Policy on “Personal Emergency Leave” and “Vacation and Float time”.
