Benefit Information

Full-time, 12-month non-instructional employees initially earn 12 days per year and 20 days per year after four years employment.  Vacation is initially accrued at one day per month.

Employees are able to use vacation time after six months employment.

Full-time non-instructional employees working under 9-11 month contracts are given four personal days in lieu of vacation that may be used as soon as they are granted.

Personal and Professional Days - Faculty Only
Full-time faculty members are given five personal days and five professional days an academic year. These days do not accumulate.

Sick Leave
Full-time faculty members and full-time non-instructional employees working under 9-11 month contracts are given ten days of sick leave per academic year. All other full-time employees accrue sick leave at the rate of one day per month of employment (12 days per year). For all employees, at the end of any fiscal year in which at least 30 days of sick leave have been accrued, a full 90 days of sick leave will be granted. Sick leave may be used once it has been accrued. A sick leave bank is available for employees suffering serious medical problems without enough sick leave to provide coverage.

The college observes 12 official holidays per year, and is normally closed for 9 working days during the Christmas/New Years holiday period with all working days being paid. Full-time non-instructional staff are entitled to take two additional days off with pay during spring break.

Employees are required to participate in the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System (KPERS). After July 1, 2009, a 6% deduction will be required for all new hires with the state providing a match. Employee contributions are not lost when leaving employment before full vesting. Previous military and public teaching service may be purchased or applied to pension account. KPERS also includes life insurance coverage equal to approximately 1 1/2 times their annual salary, and the employee can purchase more at a very reasonable cost.
