Paid Time Off
Unless otherwise provided under the terms of this policy or any other applicable University policies, full-time covered employees shall receive paid time off, at their regular base pay, for scheduled holidays. And, unless otherwise provided under the terms of this policy or any other applicable University policy, part-time covered employees shall receive paid time off, at his or her regular base pay, based on the number of hours for which he or she was scheduled to work that day.
Please take note of the following:
