July 30, 2014 -- As CNM approaches the Academic Year End, Instructional employees should review their leave balances on their bi-weekly check stubs, or in myCNM, and compare their personal leave balance to the collective bargaining agreement that covers their employment category. If employees are over the maximum personal leave balance allowed to carry forward, there is still time to use leaves before the end of the academic year. If instructional employees have excess personal leave at the end of the academic year and wish to exercise the option for payout, they must email email@example.com requesting the payment of excess personal leave per your collective bargaining agreement. If employees want their excess personal converted to sick then no action is necessary. See below to read information from the collective bargaining agreement covering instructional employees.
