Personal Time

Personal Time Accruals

Bentley provides full-time, non-union staff employees with personal time to attend to matters they may want to handle without using vacation.  While personal time can be used for any reason, employees must schedule personal time in advance with their supervisors. Personal time must be used before June 30th each year; unused personal time cannot be carried over to the following fiscal year.

Personal time will be granted as follows:

* Part-time, less-than-half-time, temporary, casual, and seasonal employees are not eligible for personal days.

* For Bargaining Unit employees, the time off provisions in the union contracts apply.

Non-exempt employees can use personal time in quarter-hour increments.  Exempt staff who are absent for 4 or more hours in a workday, but less than a whole day, must record 4 hours.  Exempt employees who take off less than four hours are expected to make up their work in a timely manner.

Summer Schedule

Employees who work the compressed work week during Bentley’s Summer Schedule and who use personal time will be required to use the number of hours they would be scheduled to work (i.e. 8.75 hours per day for a 35-hour per week employee and 10 hours per day for a 40-hour per week employee).

Termination of Employment

Employees will not be paid for unused personal time when their employment with Bentley terminates.  An employee’s last day of employment must be the last day actually worked and cannot be a vacation day or a personal day.
