|32 Days Per Year|
|0-2 Years of Service||21 Days Year|
|3-4 Years of Service||26 Days Year|
|5+ Years of Service||32 Days Year|
Employees are encouraged to use their PTO leave each year rather than accumulate the time. Unused PTO may be carried past June 30th of each year, but no individual may carry forward more PTO time than two times his/her maximum accrual for the year, subject to the limitations specified in Policy 410-03, regarding payment for PTO leave upon termination.
At the end of each fiscal year, any unused PTO time in excess of two times the annual accrual rate will be converted to the compassionate leave bank.
Bereavement Leave: Bereavement leave provides 3 days (in state) or 5 days (out of state) paid time off in the event of a death in the immediate family. Your supervisor may approve an additional 3 days with pay that is charged to your PTO (or sick leave for faculty) balance.
Emergency Leave: When initiated by the President, emergency leave is offered to pay employees regular wages in the event CCC closes due to natural disaster, inclement weather or other reasons which may restrict or jeopardize the employee's safety.
Jury Duty: Employees will be released for jury duty at their regular rate of pay. The College reserves the right to request that the employee be dismissed from jury duty should the employees absence pose any undue hardship on the College.
Holiday Leave: CCC recognizes 21 holidays each calendar year and employees are paid their regular wages during these days off.
Family Leave: Under the provisions of the "Family and Medical Leave Act", eligible employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave annually for the birth or placement of a child, or for the care of a child’s, spouse’s, parent’s or the employee’s own serious health condition.

HSA: Benefit eligible employees who elect the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) from Blue Cross Blue Shield are eligible to participate in a Health Savings Account. This benefit allows employees to set aside money pre-tax for un-reimbursed medical, dental, orthodontic and vision expenses or retirement.
