The schedule below outlines the days on which the University will be closed due to recognized holidays and for Winter Break. This summary also establishes when eligible employees will receive "holiday premium pay" (time plus one-half), and also identifies days when eligible employees may be entitled to a "paid day off" during the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Policy handbooks for staff provide for more detailed information as to benefit provisions related to recognized holidays. As always, feel free to contact Human Resources if you are unsure of your eligibility and the application of benefits.

Other Days off with Pay under Holiday Policy

Eligible staff who are normally scheduled to work on the date of closure will be paid their normal pay for the days above. For employees on varied schedules, the amount of holiday pay will be based on their Full-Time Equivalency (FTE). For all closures above, except Winter Break, if the date of closure is not a regularly scheduled workday, the affected employee will be granted another day off with pay for use prior to the end of the fiscal year (5/31). During Winter Break, if the date(s) of closure are not regularly scheduled workdays, then no additional days are extended to the affected employee and will not be "floated" for use at other times.

Winter Break  closure begins Monday, December 23rd, and continues through January 1st, making the return to work date Thursday, January 2nd. For classified employees who must work during Winter Break, only Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day will qualify for holiday premium pay (time plus one-half). Days scheduled and worked during Winter Break that are not designated holidays will be exchanged for another day off with pay before June 1, 2014 (May 15, 2014 for classified staff) and cannot be carried over to the next fiscal year. See "Winter Break" policy in the Administrative and Classified Staff Handbook for more information.
