Time Off

Paid Vacation Time

At Fordham, we appreciate how hard employees work and recognizes the importance of providing time for rest and relaxation. We fully encourage employees to get this rest by taking vacation time.

  • Administrators accrue paid vacation time based on length of service.  Vacation time must be taken during the year in which it is earned.

    The following chart describes the monthly vacation benefit accrual thresholds. Vacation accrual allowances are credited on the first day of each month and can be used during the employee’s Introductory Period with supervisor approval.
