(Approved by USM BOR on April 21, 2017; UMGC President on July 1, 2017)
Purpose and Applicability
This policy establishes the right to receive Paid Administrative Time Off for service as an Election Judge for all University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) Nonexempt and Exempt Staff employees on Regular Status and to be absent from duty without loss of any pay or without charge to the employee's accrued time off. Nonexempt Staff employees who are included in the representation of the collective bargaining unit are subject to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and applicable UMGC HR Policies; where there is a conflict between the two, the MOU will prevail.
An employee, appointed by the Election Director of a Local Election Board, as specified in the Election Law Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland shall be entitled to use one (1) hour of Paid Administrative Time Off for each hour of service as an Election Judge up to a total of eight (8) hours for each day of service without loss of pay or charge to any time off; and shall be entitled to receive the Election Judge compensation as specified in the Election Law Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
The UMGC President has designated the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) to administer this policy; to develop procedures as necessary to implement this policy; to communicate this policy to the UMGC community; and to post the policy and any applicable procedures on the UMGC website.
