Employee Service Awards Policy

Purpose

The purpose of the policy is to recognize and show appreciation to those employees who have demonstrated their commitment in serving the College through continued employment. 

Scope

This policy applies to all employees at Columbia College.

Policy

Columbia College appreciates the continued service rendered by its employees. In recognition of such service, awards are presented at the Annual Employee Appreciation Luncheon to commemorate service after 5 years, and in 5 year increments thereafter.

Years of Service Calculation for Staff Members

Employee’s years’ of service begins from the first day of employment and is calculated through their termination date.  If an employee leaves employment with Columbia College and returns at a later date, the previous years’ of service will count and only the break in service will be subtracted from the calculation for purposes of service awards.  For purposes of calculation of the Employee Appreciation awards, the cut-off date of May 31 of the year the awards are being presented is used.  If an employee began employment prior to May 31st, and is eligible for an award, it will be presented at the award celebration.  However, if the employee began employment after May 31st, then they will receive the award for which he/she are eligible for at the next years’ award celebration.

Years of Service Calculation for Adjunct Faculty

Adjuncts must teach a minimum of two sessions out of the academic year to be counted as a year of service.  For purposes of calculation of the Employee Appreciation awards, the cut-off date of May 31 of the year the awards are being presented is used.  If an employee began employment prior to May 31st, and is eligible for an award, it will be presented at the award celebration.  However, if the adjunct began employment after May 31st, then they will receive the award for which he/she are eligible for at the next years’ award celebration.
