Columbus Day Holiday 2013
This year, classes are scheduled on the Columbus Day holiday, Monday, October 14. Department heads and supervisors should communicate to their classified and professional employees whether they will be required to work on that day.
For employees who are required to work, the following state attendance rules will apply:
Classified employees who work on October 14 will be compensated according to their holiday waiver status. Those who have not elected to waive additional money for holiday work will receive holiday pay per their bargaining unit agreements. Employees who waived additional money for holiday work will receive compensatory time off instead of additional holiday pay. Classified employees who wish to inquire about their current holiday waiver status may call the Payroll Office at ext. 4124.
UUP-represented and M/C employees who are eligible to observe holidays and are required to work on October 14 will be granted a compensatory day off. The compensatory day off should be scheduled at a time agreeable to the employee and his or her supervisor within one year of the holiday.
Employees who are not required to work on October 14 do not need to charge leave accruals for that day.
