POLICY

Time-Keeping for University Closure Due to Weather or Other Emergency

Scope of this Policy

In the event that the University officially closes or has a delayed opening or early closure due to a weather emergency or other emergency, the policy to record attendance for the closure is:

  • All non-exempt employees (i.e., clerical, technical, etc.) should be marked "Excused Absence Paid" for the full day or hour(s) on their timesheets, provided they were scheduled to work that day or hour(s)
  • Non-exempt employees that were unaware of the University's closing, and reported for work must be paid as follows in addition to the "Excused Absence Paid" time pay:
    -- Regular Rate Overtime: Worked hours up to their standard weekly full-time hours
    -- 1.5 Regular Rate Overtime: Worked hours in excess of their standard weekly full-time hours
  • Exempt employees (i.e., administrators, managers, etc.) not recording time on timesheets should not have the day or hour(s) deducted from their vacation accrual or personal time, provided they were scheduled to work that day or hour(s)
  • Exempt employees who worked do not get additional pay or time-off
