University operations will be maintained as usual. Managers are
asked to give maximum consideration to the preferences of employees
for using the additional compensatory leave, while also coordinating
employee leave so that offices are adequately staffed and service
to the public is not disrupted. The compensatory leave must be
used within 12 months of the date earned.
faculty may take an additional 24 hours of leave at the discretion
of their managers. The additional holiday time does not apply
to Medical Center employees.
