Administrative Leave Day on December 24, 2012

View memo:  Dec. 24 2012 Admin Leave

President Loh has informed the campus that the University will be closed on December 24, 2012 to express his gratitude for the hard work and dedication of our employees. Pursuant to authority granted under Board of Regents policy, Dr. Loh has designated 12/24/2012 as an Administrative Leave day for all regular/contingent II staff and faculty.

Some “Essential” staff may be expected to report to work as usual. If eligible, Essential employees that work will receive compensatory time or additional pay for the portion of their regularly scheduled shift that is covered by the campus closure on December 24, 2012, in addition to their hours worked. This shall be in accordance with the employee’s overtime payment status and relevant personnel policy on work hours and overtime.

There may be employees who have previously requested to be on Annual Leave or
other paid leave on December 24, 2012. Those employees will not be required to charge the pre-approved leave on that day and Administrative leave should be used instead. However, employees who are in an unpaid leave status on the prior scheduled workday are ineligible for this Administrative l eave, pursuant to applicable USM policies.

Please note that 8 hours of Administrative Leave will be populated on the PHR timesheets and Faculty Leave Records for all full-time regular and contingent II staff and faculty for December 24, 2012. For part-time employees, supervisors should record the appropriate hours based on the employee’s schedule.

Should you have any questions concerning the treatment of leave time on December
24, 2012, please contact the University Human Resources-PHR Service Center at 301.405.7575.

Enjoy your winter break!
