Bereavement Days: Goodwin College allows up to five (5) days, as needed, of paid leave upon the passing of an immediate family member such as a spouse, parent, or child. Up to two (2) days of paid leave are allowed for the passing of other close family members such as a sibling, grandparent, mother-in law or father-in-law. Other needs for paid leave due to bereavement can be met with the use of personal time, with supervisor approval. Please notify your supervisor immediately after learning that you need this leave. If you determine that additional time off is needed due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. travel), personal time off may be taken with management approval.
Jury Duty: If you should be called to serve on a jury, please notify your supervisor within 24 hours after receiving your jury duty notice. The College will pay you your regular salary for the first five (5) days of jury duty, provided you submit proof of attendance to the College. Thereafter, the state will pay you jury duty pay.
Court Appearances: If you receive a subpoena or are required to appear in court other than on direct College business, the time must be taken as earned personal time.
