To assist employees with timecard completion during these periods, the Office of Human Resources would like to provide the University-designated Winter and Spring Break days, holidays, leave instructions (administrative, annual, and leave without pay (LWOP)), and additional information exclusive to essential employees and bargaining unit employees. Additional details regarding each closure are below:
The University will implement a full campus closure during Winter Break, from 12:01 a.m. on Monday, December 16, 2019, through 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, January 1, 2020. Campus will re-open on January 2.

IMPORTANT: Essential employees who are required to work during the Winter and/or Spring closures will receive notification of essential status in advance from supervisors. Bargaining unit employees are expected to follow this guidance unless it conflicts with the terms of an applicable collective bargaining agreement. In such case(s), the terms of the collective bargaining agreement shall govern.
