University officers have approved the 2013 winter close schedule, setting the winter close to start on Monday, December 23, 2013 and run through Friday, January 3, 2014 as well as three additional days off with pay during that time period for employees. Regular operations are scheduled to resume on Monday, January 6, 2014.
The additional days off with pay may be taken on any normal workday during the winter close period that is not an employee’s regularly scheduled day or a designated university holiday. For the other regular workdays during the winter close period that are not designated by the university as holidays or a paid day off, employees may use accrued vacation time, any available PTO, approved time off without pay, or any combination thereof.
The official list of university holidays is online. School and business unit HR professionals typically communicate details associated with the winter close during fall quarter.
