3.8.4 Religious Accommodations

adopted: Jan-1980
last revised: Nov-2011

The College respects the freedom of religion, and will grant employees reasonable accommodations when needed to avoid conflicts between work duties and their religious beliefs, if it can do so without undue hardship. Employees seeking time off for religious observances should provide as much advance notice of their need for time off as possible, as it may not be possible to honor last-minute requests. Employees may be required to use available leave time, if any, to cover absences for religious observances. Requests for additional leave or other accommodations will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
