University Closure Compensation Policy

Policy Information

PDF version
Effective Date: 
August 25, 2022
Last Revised Date: 
August, 2022

Purpose and Summary

The University observes an annual scheduled period of University closure time for the day after the Thanksgiving holiday and the period of closure time between the Christmas holiday and the New Year's holiday. The President or the President’s designee may identify certain buildings and/or areas that will be exempt from the University closure based on a business need to remain open. When the University is closed, most employees do not report to work and do not receive regular pay. This Policy provides appropriate compensation.

This update is being requested in conjunction with an update to the Holidays Policy that will add Juneteenth as a University holiday and remove the day after Thanksgiving as a holiday. The policy change provides a paid day off in the way of a closure day for the day after the Thanksgiving holiday.
