Designated Holiday Weekend


The University never completely closes; some work activities must occur even when classes are not in session. Employees who work on a designated holiday will receive alternate holiday time off or be paid in lieu of taking alternate time off. 

* Non-exempt staff who work on these days may be eligible for a holiday pay differential.
