Policy F.2.7 of the Personnel Policy and Procedure Manual will be administered for those individuals required to work during the Holiday Break.

The employee shall either be credited with equivalent compensatory time off, on an hour for hour basis, or be paid an additional amount, at the straight-time rate, for the hours worked. The decision to allow compensatory time off or make additional payment is reserved to the Director or Chair, giving consideration to staffing needs and budgetary constraints.

Please use the Holiday Hours Worked form to communicate holiday hours worked by staff employees.  The employee will see the holiday hours worked as additional vacation hours on their paycheck stub.

Thank you for your continued dedicated service to the University.  I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy new year.
