Category A Employee Definition


Category A - Emergency Services Personnel are expected to work during an inclement weather emergency to ensure the proper functioning of the College.  Senior Cabinet Officers should ensure that each employee knows his/her classification, and the office of the Director of Human Resources will maintain a list of such classifications.

The President will decide when to declare an inclement weather emergency for administrative operations, thus authorizing Category B employees to go home if inclement weather develops during the workday, or to remain at home if inclement weather develops during the night.  Category A employees are expected to stay at the College or report to work as notified.  Category B employees may elect to work during inclement weather with the approval of their supervisors.

Supervisors must scrupulously avoid even the appearance of pressuring Category B employees to work during an inclement weather emergency and should be prepared to help Category A employees with transportation to and from work.  Category A employees will be provided meals during the emergency situation, and, if necessary, overnight accommodations will be provided.
