The subject appendices were first included in the agreements effective April 1, 1985, and they constitute the entire agreement with respect to employees in positions designated seasonal in each of these units. (Previously, separate memoranda of understanding were developed, usually following negotiation of the contracts.)
Since this Manual is organized by topic, it includes specific references to seasonal employees in each applicable section; the subject appendices provide a useful summary of which provisions apply. This Appendix identifies which seasonal employees have Attendance Rules coverage and the benefits that flow from that, lists what attendance and leave benefits are available to seasonal employees who do not have Rules coverage and discusses eligibility for crediting and use of Seasonal Leave credits.Attendance Rules Coverage
Seasonal employees in all the subject units who are employed on a per diem or hourly basis to work a qualifying schedule (either at least 1/2 time per pay period or at least 3 3/4 hours a day, five days a week) for 19 continuous pay periods (without a break in service which exceeds one pay period) are eligible for Attendance Rules coverage and to earn leave accruals. Annual salaried employees are covered by the Rules without regard to a "seasonal" designation and those working a qualifying schedule are eligible to earn leave accruals.Holidays
Seasonal employees who have Rules coverage are eligible to observe holidays and to receive holiday pay if they work on a holiday. Seasonal employees do not have the option of waiving holiday pay for those holidays they work. (There is also a holiday pay provision in these appendices for certain seasonal employees who do not have Attendance...
...Rules coverage. See pp. C-2 through C-3 of Section 21.1 of this Manual for a discussion of holiday benefits for seasonal employees.)Workers' Compensation
Seasonal employees in the subject units who have Rules coverage are eligible for the workers' compensation benefits provided in the various agreements. For seasonal employees who do not have Rules coverage, these appendices provide workers' compensation leave up to a maximum of three days or 24 hours, whichever is less, in each season for the employee who incurs an occupational injury or disease as defined by the Workers' Compensation Board. Seasonal employees are not eligible to be kept on the payroll beyond the last day of the season in order to continue to receive the benefit. (See Section 21.8, pp. C-11 and C-21.)Seasonal Leave Credits in Administrative, Institutional and Operational Services Units
Effective April 1, 1985, certain seasonal employees in the Administrative, Institutional and Operational Services Units who are not covered by the Attendance Rules have a new leave benefit. Specifically, such employees are eligible to be credited with three days of Seasonal Leave provided they meet the following criteria:
For seasonal employees in these three units who completed the three years of qualifying service prior to April 1, 1985, the earliest possible date on which Seasonal Leave may be credited is June 1, 1985.
These Seasonal Leave credits are provided under the following conditions:
Service with more than one State agency must be counted in determining
whether a seasonal employee in one of the three CSEA Units has met
the 19 cumulative pay period requirement.
Effective April 1, 1985, certain seasonal employees in the Security Services Unit not covered by the Attendance Rules have a new leave benefit. Specifically, such employees are eligible to be credited with one day of Seasonal Leave provided they meet the following criteria:
For seasonal employees in the Security Services Unit who completed
the eight years of qualifying service prior to April 1, 1985, the
earliest point at which Seasonal Leave may be credited is following
completion of 100 hours of service rendered subsequent to April 1,
Service with more than one State agency must be counted in determining whether a seasonal employee has met the length of service requirement described above.
