Floating Holiday 

All non-union staff employees who are eligible for paid holidays receive one floating holiday (or equivalent hours) to be used during the calendar year. Staff hired after January 1 will receive the floating holiday the following calendar year.  

The floating holiday may be used on a day mutually agreeable to the staff member and supervisor. It will be pro-rated for part-time employees based on weekly scheduled hours and number of months worked. Unused days will not carry over year-to-year and are not eligible for payout upon termination. The floating holiday appears on the Time Off Worklet in Workday.

Union employees should consult their collective bargaining agreement for information regarding their paid holidays.

Election Day

*Effective September 8, 2020, the university will observe Election Day on all even-numbered years, which include both presidential and midterm Congressional elections.
