Holidays 2016

Massachusetts Legal Holidays

For all employees at the College, Evacuation Day and Bunker Hill Day are regular workdays.  Individuals who wish to take those days off must request to use personal leave, vacation, or previously earned compensatory time. 

Non-benefited employees including non-benefited MCCC professional staff are expected to report to work and be paid as usual.  Any request for time off requires prior approval and if a non-benefited MCCC professional has all purpose leave available, it may be used.
