Holidays

If you are in a 100% FTE position, each holiday established by the University is intended to give you eight hours of paid time-off.

If you are in less than a 100% FTE position, please refer to HR 88 to learn about how to calculate your holiday time.

Established University Holidays for 2017:

Day After Thanksgiving—November 24, 2017 is designated as “Campus Closure”, not a holiday. In September, 2016 President Barron announced that the day after Thanksgiving would be designated as a “Campus Closure” day for 2016 as well as in future years. Please note that this day is not a holiday and should be designated as “Campus Closure” on attendance records for those employees who normally work on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Part-time employees, who obtained earned time eligibility under former policy HR05 prior to Dec. 31, 2014, are only eligible for Holiday Pay on days normally scheduled to work which fall on established University holidays.

Employees represented by a union will locate their holiday provisions in their respective Collective Bargaining Agreements. 

For more information regarding holidays, refer to University Policy HR34, Employment Conditions for Staff Employees.

Questions regarding this holiday schedule should be directed to the appropriate college or department HR Strategic Partner.
