Item VI.A
Underwriting compensation
For a six-month trial period RCR will allow volunteers, programmers and staff members to receive a one time finders fee for new underwriting contracts for KMUD (see stipulations below for qualifying persons and UDWs).  If management and the BOD agree, this trial period can be extended.
Programmers, volunteers, and staff will be paid a one time 10 percent finder fee on the first paid-in-full underwriting contract.
To qualify:
Staff, volunteers, or programmers interested in participating must attend training with management and the Underwriting Representative.  They must also be approved by both management and the Underwriting Representative and sign a contract.
The underwriting form (needs to be designed) must be filled out in full and turned into the Underwriting Representative.
The one-time finder’s fee will only be paid when the original contract has been paid in full.
Qualifying new underwriters cannot have underwritten the station in the last 15 months.  (This question needs to be first on the form so reps aren't finding out later that UDWs don't qualify.)
The Underwriting Representative is also entitled to a one time 10 percent finder‘s fee on all new accounts that they personally bring in with underwriters who have not underwritten in the past 15 months.
Item VI.B
Sick Leave Policy wording clarification
Employees who were hired to work 40 hours per week receive ten days of paid sick days per year, eight days for 32-hour-per-week employees, etc.  Sick pay accrues from the first day of employment and can be used after the completion of 30 days of continuous employment.  Sick leave must be accrued before it can be paid.  Employees of less than 30 days may take sick time off without pay without reducing the number of paid sick days they are earning.  The accrual of sick days is capped at 1.5 times the annual accrual rate.  No more sick days can be accrued until drawn down.  Sick days cannot be converted to vacation leave.  Unused sick leave shall not be paid in cash.
