News for Staff
After receiving several emails in reference to the Winter Closure (Dec 23 - Jan 3) and the requirement to take 6 days of leave or LWOP this is the response Staff Council President, Gwenna Richardson, received from Michael Ciri, Vice Chancellor of Admin Services:
- Due to reasons of the calendar, the winter break schedule is awkward. For example, our normal day to come back falls on a Friday, making this a one-day work week.
- For simplicity reasons, much awkwardness can be spared if we close the campus and encourage employees to take the full two weeks off. To this end, we are closing the campus.
- The time *between* the Christmas and New Year holidays (Dec 24-Jan 2) is our normal campus closure. Should departments or campuses require staffing, they should request permission from the Chancellor per our customary practice.
- The two days prior and especially the first day back (the Friday) are closed, but do not require Chancellor's approval. The campus will be closed; however, employees disadvantaged due to lack of leave who want to come in should be allowed to do so.
If you have any questions/concerns please contact your Supervisor. If you have any comments please contact any of your Staff Council Representatives.
