On Wednesday, Sept. 30, the College of Staten Island was closed in connection with a power outage due to failure of an electrical substation.

Full-time classified and instructional staff employees, other than essential employees, will be granted leave with pay and without charge to annual leave accruals, except for employees who are on scheduled annual leave or sick leave. Full- time teaching faculty and adjunct teaching instructional staff will receive their regular pay and are expected to make up the lost instructional time.

Full-time employees in the white collar bargaining unit required by the College to work shall be credited with one hour of compensatory time for each hour worked, to the nearest quarter hour.

Part-time employees (e.g., College assistants, continuing education teachers, non-teaching adjuncts, and adjunct College laboratory technicians) shall not be paid for the day, but should be permitted to make up the hours of work lost in accordance with the needs and resources of the College. When it is not feasible to assign make-up hours, the College may permit part-time employees to charge the absence to available annual leave, if the collective bargaining agreement covering the title provides annual leave (e.g., College assistants).

Time and Leave Practices for Essential Employees 

Employees designated by the College as essential employees who were expected to report to work on Wednesday, Sept. 30, and did not report to work, shall not be paid for the day. Designated essential employees who were on pre-scheduled annual leave or on sick leave shall have such absences charged as originally designated.
