University Closure Pay
Monthly-paid employees should record previously scheduled leave time as usual, if applicable. Their Leave Reports will be unaffected by this closure (i.e. no ‘closure’ leave needs to be entered).
“University Closure Pay” is compensation designed to:
- ensure that hourly-paid non-essential employees are compensated when prevented from working when the university has been officially closed, and
- provide additional compensation to essential employees who are required to work when the University has been officially closed.
Hourly-paid employees who have been previously identified as essential and who were required to work during the closure period will be compensated for all hours worked in addition to “University Closure Pay.” Non-essential hourly-paid employees who were required to work during the closure period are deemed essential for the period.
Those non-essential employees who reported for work during the closure period, but were not required to report, will be paid only for hours worked and they will not be eligible to receive “University Closure Pay.” Hourly-paid employees should complete their electronic timesheets as follows:
- All employees who did not report for duty during the period because of prescheduled time off should report the time off as was previously approved.
- All employees who did not report to work during
the period solely due to the closure should report all hours they were
previously scheduled to work during the closure period under “University
-The hours of university closure pay are determined by the employee's regular shift (e.g. if the employee's regular shift begins at 8:00 a.m., the “University Closure Pay” would be from 8:00 a.m. to 10: 00 a.m. for a total of 2 hours). The delay this morning was officially announced at 3:15 a.m. Friday, December 6, 2013.
- All employees who were required to work during the closure should record the actual time worked on the “Regular Earnings” line. Additionally, any hours worked during the closure period or hours prevented from working during the closure period should be placed on the “University Closure Pay” line. Employees who worked during the closure period must also add a comment to their timesheet that documents the specific times they started and stopped work during the period of closure (i.e., 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.).
- Employees who reported to work but were not required to do so should report any hours worked under “Regular Earnings.”
