Due to natural emergencies, State or Federal emergencies or reasons of health and safety, the University may be subject to administrative closure. Emergency closings shall extend until such time as the emergency giving rise to the closing has been resolved so as to permit resumption of normal operations.
Administrative operations of the University may be closed for up to three days during the winter semester break when such closure will provide significant operational cost savings.
Administrative closure shall be declared by the President. Employees are considered to be on paid leave for the duration of an administrative closing unless otherwise provided in this policy or determined by the President of the University.
Hourly employees (Civil Service and Administrative Professional) who are required or authorized to work on an Administrative Closure day will earn regular pay (straight time) for hours worked, with equal time off in the future up to 7.5 hours (8.0 hours for employees working a 40 hour work week), normally to be taken within two weeks.
In order to be eligible for administrative closure pay during the winter semester break, hourly employees must be in pay status (either at work or using a payable benefit (e.g. vacation time, compensatory time, paid leave of absence, etc.)) and exempt employees must be in a pay status (not using dock time) on the last scheduled workday before and the first scheduled workday after the administrative closure.
