December 26, 27, 28 and 29 are winter holidays. Jan. 2, 2017, which is marked as New Year’s Day, is a holiday as well.
Employees who are required to work on scheduled holidays shall be given, in addition to their regular salary, premium pay equal to one-half of their regular straight time rate for hours on these days, and shall be given equivalent time off on a date approved by the department head.
Permanent part-time employees receive holidays on a prorated basis. Temporary employees are not eligible for paid holidays. Please direct any questions you may have regarding holiday leave to Kathy Watford in the Employee Services Department of HR, extension 45009.
On Dec. 30, 2016, the university is closed.
Employees may use accrued vacation time, bonus leave, compensatory time or leave without pay to cover the one day the University is closed. Employees who have no accrued leave time may make up the time with supervisory approval. An employee must exhaust all accumulated vacation/bonus leave before going on leave without pay for the purpose of vacation.
