University Holidays in December

To Case Western Reserve University Faculty and Staff:

Barbara R. Snyder

This year the university's holiday schedule calls for the campus to be closed on Thursday, December 25 and Friday, December 26. In recognition of your hard work and achievements, university leaders have agreed to close the campus at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24.

Some university employees hold positions that require work after 3:00 p.m. on December 24, including those who work shifts other than the standard 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For those employees in this situation, two hours of time off will be made available for future use. Employees must coordinate with supervisors to determine a mutually agreeable date.

Because December 24 is not a university holiday, employees will be compensated at their normal rate of pay for the time off resulting from the early close.

Please contact Carolyn Gerich in Employee Relations at 368-2458 with any questions.

Thank you for all you have done to help Case Western Reserve University realize its goals this year.

Sincerely,

Barbara R. Snyder
President
