Human Resource

All appointed staff in active or partial leave status on March 1, 2017 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 April 14, 2017 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.

Dates of future paid holidays during the year 2017 are:

New Year’s Day

Sunday, January 1 (observed Monday, January 2)

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Monday, January 16

Campus Holiday Accrues on March 1 of each year. The Campus Holiday is either a “floating” holiday or a day designated by the president of the university or the chancellor of the campus. On campuses that treat the holiday as a floating holiday, Campus Holiday is available to use on or after March 1

A reminder to employees to save PTO or vacation hours (not sick time) to cover office closings between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. 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.
