Procedures 

If you terminate your employment or if you are terminated, you will not be paid for unused vacation, sick, and/or personal time.

Because vacation is meant to provide rest and relaxation for Bethel employees and is not meant to serve as a bridge to new employment, Bethel limits the amount of vacation that you can take once it is known that you are leaving the University.  Once it is known that you are leaving the University, you may take a maximum of 5 vacation days within the last 30 days of employment. If you do use vacation after it is known that you are leaving, none of the days may be taken during the final week of employment.
