Classified Employees Information
- Full-time classified employees receive eight hours of leave, prorated for part-time staff.
- Employees may request the option of using this paid leave on any mutually agreeable day between, and including, the day before Thanksgiving and January 31. Where no day during this time can be mutually agreed upon, another day of the employee’s choice shall be granted, provided that approved usage does not create the closure of facilities. This day must be used no later than June 30 of that fiscal year or it is forfeited and is not compensable. 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.
SEIU- represented temporary employees are not eligible for holiday pay but do earn time-and-a-half for work performed on a recognized holiday.
