December 26 – 28th 2018: during this time period the University will be closed with only essential personnel as needed.  The President has once again designated up to three days (based on your regular schedule) as extra paid holiday days for permanent staff to provide more time to enjoy the holiday season while maintaining necessary university functions.  Supervisors will work with staff regarding necessary assignments and procedures for payroll.  Non-exempt (hourly) and exempt (salaried) staff will not need to account for these days in their vacation banks for 2018-2019.

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 (Hourly) Personnel: Eligibility requirements and overtime pay provisions may be found under the holiday section of the applicable documents for non-exempt employees. Managers will also receive direction from Human Resources and Payroll in preparation for timesheets for the December holidays as payroll runs in advance of normal processing timelines.

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

Please circulate within your department.
