Winter Break Leave

Some how it’s already time for Winter Break!  Here are a few reminders for how to handle reporting time off:

There will not be a general, campus-wide early release on Christmas Eve.  Deans and non-academic Department Heads have discretion to staff accordingly to meet customer demand on Christmas Eve.  If a department closes early, employees may take the time as unpaid or use their Vacation or Personal days to be paid for those hours.

Winter break days are governed by CRR 340.045 Winter Break Reduced Operations which specifies that Winter Break occurs “during the period starting the day after Christmas Day holiday is observed and running through the end of the day before New Year’s Day holiday is observed.”

Please call or email your HR Consultant or the HR Department if you have questions, and have a pleasant holiday season!
