December 27 – 29th 2016: The University will be closed with only essential personnel as needed.  These extra paid holiday days are given to provide as much opportunity for staff to enjoy the holiday season while maintaining necessary university functions. Supervisors will work with staff regarding necessary assignments and procedures for payroll.  Hourly and exempt staff will not need to account for these days in their vacation banks for 2016-2017.

Maintaining Operations: As in the past, it is anticipated that a complete shutdown of all operations for all holidays is impractical.  Each administrator will determine the degree of operation and staff required during the holiday period, and advise appropriate departments well in advance of the particular holiday so that proper arrangements can be made for telephone services, emergencies, etc.

Non-Exempt Personnel

Eligibility requirements and overtime pay provisions may be found under the holiday section of the applicable documents for non-exempt employees.

Personal Holidays may be taken when an employee wishes, provided one week's advance notice is given, and/or as specified in the applicable bargaining unit agreement.


Please call Human Resources ext. 5596 if there are any questions.

Please circulate within your department.
