On Friday, November 25, the day after Thanksgiving, university offices will be closed to the public. Employees may choose to take a vacation day, work from home (if the job is conducive and with approval from the supervisor), or come into the office and work as normal.
Beginning December 27 through December 30, 2022 university offices will be closed to the public. Employees may choose to take vacation time, work from home (if the job is conducive and with approval from the supervisor), or come into the office and work as normal.
There are some exceptions to this notice for areas that support 24-hour, 7 days-a-week operations such as the police department, heating plant, housing services, and other essential student-facing departments. Other less-than-essential student-facing departments should make sure students are able to reach someone in the department, if needed, via call forwarding or email.
Because Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fall on Saturdays this year, eligible employees will receive floating holidays for both days. Christmas Day and New Year’s Day both fall on Sundays, and therefore the holidays are observed on Monday, December 26, and Monday, January 2, respectively.
Below is an outline of how the floating holiday may be used:
- An eligible employee may use floating legal holiday hours prior to the date on which the holiday occurs.
- Floating legal holidays (for eligible employees) must be used by the end of the year in which it was granted.
- University staff must use the hours on or before December 31 of the calendar year granted.
- Academic, and Limited staff must use it on or before June 30 of the fiscal year granted.
- If the hours are not used by the end of the designated year, the hours are lost and cannot be carried into the following year (calendar or fiscal).
