A university employee who volunteers as an Emergency Medical Technician ("EMT") -- EMT-Basic or EMT-1, first responder, paramedic, or volunteer firefighter, is to receive 40 hours of leave with pay each calendar year to use during those hours when the employee is absent from work in order to provide emergency medical service or fire-fighting service. Part-time employees shall receive a prorated benefit (for example, a 20-hour-a-week employee shall receive 20 hours of emergency service leave per year). If fewer than the allocated number of hours of Emergency Service Leave is used in a calendar year, the remainder is not accumulated for use in any later year.
Compensation shall be at the employee's regular rate of pay for those regular work hours during which the employee is absent from work.
The employee must meet the certification requirements for holding a position as an EMT-Basic, EMT-1, first responder, paramedic, or volunteer firefighter, and must establish eligibility for emergency leave by providing University Human Resources with a valid certification, submitted in accordance with the procedure below.
Leave under this policy may be used to provide emergency medical service or fire-fighting service without regard to location, including service in response to a distant natural disaster or terrorist incident.
