All benefits-eligible staff who qualify will receive seven days at straight pay for paid winter recess. To receive winter recess pay, employees must be in pay status the last workday prior to winter recess and in pay status the first workday following winter recess. For 2017, benefits-eligible staff must work or be in pay status on Friday, Dec. 22 and on Wednesday, Jan. 3. Part-time benefits-eligible staff will receive compensation on a pro-rata basis.

For continuous shift operations (Public Safety and Power Plant), scheduled shifts that occur on non-traditional weekdays (weekends) may be included as winter recess days in equalizing time off.

Anyone required to work during recess must have the approval of the provost or appropriate vice president. Staff who work during winter recess will receive time and one-half for all hours worked. As students and faculty prepare to leave for winter break, please help conserve energy and secure the campus.

Turn off all none critical electrical items, including but not limited, to:

* lighting

* electric space heaters

* computers and printers

* copy machines

* scanners

* radios, audio systems, DVD/VCR units and televisions

* coffee pots completely turned off or unplugged (especially Bunn-style, since they keep heating the water in the tank)

* cooking appliances

It would be very helpful if someone in each area/department could make a final check to assure all non-critical items are off at the close of business on Friday, Dec. 22.

Also be sure to put away equipment, especially electronics, and ensure cabinets are locked in classrooms and laboratories.
