Inclement weather policies for employees
In accordance with the Class and Normal Operations Cancellations Policy, classes and normal operations may be cancelled by the President or her designee. Only the Governor of Rhode Island can officially close the college.
In the event that classes and activities are cancelled, employees are expected to report to work or remain at work. Non-Classified employees, classified employees and calendar-year faculty who feel that they cannot safely get to their work site or wish to leave work early due to inclement weather conditions, may be excused from work providing they discharge vacation or personal leave or take leave without pay in accordance with their contract.
Non-Classified employees may also discharge authorized compensatory time.
Designated emergency personnel are required to report to or remain at work during inclement weather conditions.
If the college itself is officially closed by the Governor, classified employees may elect to discharge sick leave as an alternative to discharging vacation or personal leave. The use of sick leave in this case is limited to a maximum of two (2) sick days per calendar year.
The following radio and television stations and websites will be broadcasting/publishing up-to-date information concerning class cancellations whenever a weather or general emergency exists.
