Davidson College Inclement Weather Policy
Adverse weather sometimes causes hazardous conditions for travel to and from work for some employees. Employees should use their own judgment regarding how weather conditions will affect their ability to travel safely to work. Work time missed due to adverse weather conditions may be:
1. Made up as time worked within a reasonable period of time,
2. Coded as personal leave time (for hourly [non-exempt] employees) if these hours have not been used,
3. Coded as vacation,
4. Taken as leave without pay, or
5. Handled under a combination of any of the above.
Realizing that the college must continue its responsibility to support students during inclement weather, it is absolutely necessary that employees of the Physical Plant staff, Dining Services, Public Safety, and others as required make every effort, consistent with safety, to report to work. Special attendance rules apply in certain departments, so employees must contact the department head or supervisor for further instructions. as soon as possible if conditions are such that traveling to work is unsafe.
Should it become necessary to close the college because of weather conditions, all employees normally scheduled to work will receive their regular pay. Those individuals who must work to maintain the health and safety of the campus or to provide essential support to students will be paid time and one half for hours worked.
Any announcement to close the college will come from the President and will be communicated to the Principal Executive Staff, the Director of Human Resources, and a member of the College Relations staff. This message will be communicated through a recording on an employee information line at 704-894-4111 (extension 4111 from on-campus) and will also be broadcast on:
Radio - WBT 1110 AM
Questions regarding this policy should be directed to Human Resources at 704-894-2213.
