Extension of 2012 Special Winter Vacation to Include Monday, December 24, 2012

To the University Community:

After examining the University’s potential business needs—and to give our employees an additional day of well-deserved rest and replenishment—the University will extend the Special Winter Vacation for 2012 to include Monday, December 24, 2012. The Special Winter Vacation for faculty and staff will be December 24, 26, 27, 28, and 31, 2012. If an employee is required to work to continue departmental operations for part or all of this period, the special winter vacation can be rescheduled for another time.
Staff members who are absent from work either the work day before a holiday, the work day after a holiday, or both days, will receive holiday pay if that absence is charged to preapproved paid time off or to sick days substantiated by a written note from the staff member’s health care provider.

Vacations and holidays for hospital employees or those staff members in areas covered by collective bargaining agreements are governed by the terms of hospital policies or their respective collective bargaining agreements.
