Compressed Schedules and the Holidays
If they choose to stay on their compressed schedule and the holiday falls on a day when they would normally not work, when they complete their timesheet, enter 8 hours under comp time earned. They then have 8 hours of comp time that can be used, with supervisor approval, anytime during the 12 months after the holiday. If the holiday falls on a day when they would normally work, please remember that they receive 8 hours of holiday pay for the holiday. If they are on a 9 hour or 10 hour compressed daily schedule, they do have to account for the full amount of their work day on the holiday by working during that week or taking leave. If you or your faculty and staff have any questions, please call the Customer Service Center at 3.2600 and ask to speak to a member of the Life/Work Connections team.
