Policy 8.02 - Weather Related Emergencies

The college realizes that certain conditions may warrant canceling or curtailing work schedules. The responsibility for determining when an emergency exists and the appropriate action to be taken will be held by the college president. In the absence of the president, vice presidents will meet and determine the appropriate course of action. Given the diversity of college faculty and staff, there is a wide variation in where individuals live and work, as well as in the need for their being at work any particular time. While the safety and security of all employees is of utmost concern, it is anticipated that faculty and staff members will make every effort consistent with their own safety to be at work. In some cases, employees that are assigned to essential operations (Information Systems, Maintenance, Security, Payroll, etc) may be required to work during an emergency closing.
