Annual Leave/Paid Time Off
Berkeley County recognizes that employees have diverse needs requiring time off from work and believes that employees should have opportunities to enjoy time away from work to help balance their lives. The County has established an Annual Leave/Paid Time Off policy to meet those needs. Leave benefits are not available for employees in part-time and temporary positions.
Annual Leave shall accrue as follows:
Years of Service Accrual Rate Per Month Maximum Accrual Per Year
0 – 5 years 1.25 days 15 days
5 – 10 years 1.50 days 18 days
10 – 15 years 1.75 days 21 days
15 years plus 2.00 days 24 days
Berkeley County observes at least 12 paid holidays per year, and State Primary and General Election Days as they occur.
Employees earn 1.5 days of sick leave per month/18 days annually with unlimited accumulation.
Berkeley County employees are paid twice per month. A new employee ordinarily starts work at the rate specified in the announcement. The Berkeley County Commission reviews compensation increases as part of the normal budget preparation process and makes the appropriate compensation adjustments at the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1).
