(A) In addition to twelve-month full-time positions, Cleveland state provides nine- and ten-month full-time professional and classified staff contracts to some of its staff. Under this option the following general policies and specific issues for professional and classified staff shall apply.

(2) A nine/ten employee working one hundred per cent time (forty hours per week) shall be considered a full-time employee ("nine/ten employee").

(3) CSU shall provide the full complement of fringe benefits to employees in nine/ten positions. Waiting periods for vision/dental coverage and fee waiver benefits apply to nine/ten employees.

(1) Nine/ten month employees shall accrue vacation at the rate of 7.4 hours per pay period, but shall only accrue vacation for the length of their nine/ten contract. If a nine/ten employee has an additional assignment over the summer, the employee shall accrue additional vacation on a pro-rated basis (based on full-time employment stated in contract) for the length of the additional assignment.

(D) Full-time classified employees

(1) After the first year of employment, nine/ten employees shall earn vacation at the full-time rate, but shall only accrue vacation for the length of their nine/ten assignment. If a nine/ten employee has an additional assignment over the summer, the employee shall accrue additional vacation on a pro-rated basis based on hours in paid status for the length of the additional assignment.
