UB to close Dec. 25, Jan. 1

Published December 3, 2012

UB will be closed on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 in observance of the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays.

Employees required to work these days will earn a compensatory holiday that can be used at a later date.

Vice presidents and deans may choose to close their individual units Dec. 24, Dec. 26-28 and Dec. 31 if warranted by operating needs.

Employees who decide to take these days off must charge vacation, personal leave or compensatory time. Employees who do not have sufficient accruals may request an advance of up to five vacation days or can choose to take the days off without pay. Employees who plan to use the latter option should write a letter to their supervisor indicating the specific dates they wish to take without pay. Supervisors then will prepare a lost time letter and forward it to University Human Resources by Dec. 14. Sick-leave accruals may not be used.

Employees who choose to work if their units are closed may do so; the University Libraries will serve as the alternate work site.
