If a holiday falls on a Sunday, University offices are closed the following Monday. If a holiday falls on a Saturday, you will receive floating legal holiday hours to be used within the calendar year. The amount of legal holiday that part-time employees receive is pro-rated. To be eligible to be paid for a legal holiday, you must be in pay status either on the last scheduled work day immediately before the holiday or on the first scheduled work day immediately following the holiday.
In addition to legal holidays, you will receive 4½ personal holidays per year that must be used within that calendar year (36 hours) or they are lost. If you are represented by WLEA, you will receive 3½ personal holidays (24 hours). (Members of the Crafts Union do not receive personal holidays.) Personal Holidays are pro-rated for part-time employees.
A summary of your various leave balances is provided on each earnings statement.
