Human Resource

All appointed staff in active or partial leave status on March 1, 2016 when the Campus Holiday is accrued are eligible for the Campus Holiday.  The holiday may be taken as accrued or used as a floating holiday, but the holiday taken should not create a hardship on the department. The Campus Holiday must be used by the end of the last pay period of the following calendar year.

Also, providing there is no conflict with necessary departmental services, staff members desiring to attend Good Friday church services on March 25, 2016 may be excused for later return from the lunch hour for this purpose. Employees may use time off accruals per policy to cover extended time.

New employees who have not been employed long enough to earn sufficient time off to cover department closings, may borrow against future earnings of PTO or vacation hours.
