Full-time classified employees receive eight hours of leave, prorated for part-time staff. This day may be used on the day before or day after Christmas or New Year's Day holidays. The university may be open those days, and time off should be scheduled to maintain departmental services. OPEU and GCIU employees receive this day under the terms of their collective bargaining agreements. See December Holiday announcement.
SEIU- represented temporary employees are not eligible for holiday pay but do earn time-and-a-half for work performed on a recognized holiday.
