CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR'S DAY HOLIDAY INFORMATION
The university will be closed in observance of Christmas and New Year's on Eastern's four official holidays: Thursday and Friday, Dec. 24 and 25; Thursday, Dec. 31; and Friday, Jan. 1. Employees may use accrued leave or leave without pay, with supervisor approval, from Monday, Dec. 21, through Sunday, Jan. 3.
Employees who are in probationary status will be allowed to use any available accrued leave or take leave without pay during this time. Probationary employees who wish to use accrued leave during the holiday period must complete the Civil Service Employee Request for Accrued Leave During Probation form available in the Benefits Office. Supervisors are encouraged to approve such time-off requests unless the employment is required for essential duties during that period. Should an employee choose to take leave without pay, please note that accrued leave, sick leave and service credit will not be earned.
Administrators and professional staff subject to furlough days may use time during the above period to count toward their required furlough time. While this time will be without pay, the unpaid time and time off will not adversely affect pay status or eligibility rules regarding holiday compensation. Please note that the following eligibility rules apply for holiday compensation. Employees must be in an approved pay status, with or without pay, on the last scheduled work day before the holiday and the first scheduled work day following the holiday in order to receive holiday pay. Employees who are subject to the provisions of a prevailing-rate area agreement or a collective bargaining agreement will be paid according to the terms of the respective agreement.
In order to conserve energy, building temperatures will be reduced Saturday, Dec. 19, through Sunday, Jan 3. Inquiries regarding this information may be directed to the Benefits Office at 581-5825. Happy holidays!
