Employment Classifications

Section 3.B – Employment Classifications

Employees of Vance-Granville Community College will be classified in one of four distinct categories. They are:

  1. Full-time budgeted (work 30 hours or more per week, contracted to work a minimum of 9 months per year)
  2. Part-time budgeted (work less than 30 hours per week, contracted to work a minimum of 9 months per year)
  3. Full-time temporary (work 30 hours or more for a period less than 9 months per year)
  4. Part-time temporary (work less than 30 hours for a period less than 9 months peryear)

Initial appointments to all positions are considered to be probationary up to twelve (12) months and may be terminated without cause at any time during that period.Further, VGCC classifies all employees as “exempt” or “non-exempt” from regulations regarding overtime pay in accordance with the United States Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

For purposes of measuring hours worked in a workweek, the workweek is the 7-day period beginning at 12:00 a.m. on Monday and ending at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday night and consists of 40 hours. When a given workweek exceeds 40 hours, compensatory leave will be granted for “non-exempt” employees. Fulltime employees who work less than a 40-hour workweek will have pro-rated vacation and sick leave benefits. Work schedules for specific positions at the college are coordinated by each department based on the business and operational needs of the college.

Compensatory leave is not applicable to “exempt” employees.

Employees classified as “non-exempt” shall submit monthly record of hours worked, annual leave used, and sick leave used to the Human Resources Office.
