Definition of Calendar Year

For bargaining groups that participate in the Perfect Attendance Program, the calendar year is:

From pay period 1 through
pay period 26 or 27,
when applicable, of the same year.

Pay period 1 is actually for time worked in December of the previous year. Here are a couple of examples:
Employee A Employee B
If Employee A began employment in January of 2017, he or she is not eligible for rewards in 2017  because he or she was not employed during pay period 1. If Employee B was hired in December of 2016, he or she is eligible for Perfect Attendance rewards for 2017.

Check your MOU for additional details regarding Perfect Attendance.
