About Vacation Accruals for Non-Bargaining Employees

Effective July 1, 2014

Vacation time is earned as you work, at a rate which corresponds to your job classification and to the length of time you have worked at Rider. The University expects and encourages employees to take vacation time in the year it is earned. Everyone needs a break from hard work, and taking time off results in personal refreshment for the employee and renewed enthusiasm and productivity for the University.

The maximum amount of vacation time that can be accrued varies, depending on the job classification and the length of service. You can tell how much time you have available from your paystub or from the recap sheet you initial for each payroll.

The table below shows the vacation time full-time employees earn in each pay-period based on their maximum accrual amount and payroll cycle:  If you are a part-time salaried employee, your accrual each payroll cycle and maximum accrual are prorated based on the percentage of full-time schedule you work.
