D. Administrative leave

Reed College reserves the right to change, terminate or otherwise modify any or all provisions of the following benefits at any time and for any reason.


All regular full-time and part-time employees.

The program

At the beginning of each academic year, the college will make a determination as to what, if any, additional days of closure may be observed during the year.  The college may schedule administrative leave days at its discretion.  The college may also determine there will be fewer or no administrative leave days in any given year than in past years.

Employees will receive their regular rate of pay on an administrative leave day, based on the employee’s regular schedule.  The hours paid but not worked do not count towards overtime.

The time allowed during administrative leave days is not holiday time and may not be accrued, carried over, used as compensatory time or otherwise paid if not taken.   Employees who are not scheduled to work during an administrative leave day will not be paid for the time.  Not all employees will be able to take advantage of administrative leave days on a regular or even occasional basis.

At its sole discretion, the college may close on some Friday afternoons during the summer.  If the college determines to close during such times, it is understood that not all offices may close and not all employees will be able to take the time off. Vacation time taken on Fridays during closures are taken as a full day of vacation.
