UPDATED - Dec. 7, 2012
The practice of operating on a holiday schedule at the end of December will continue in 2012. The holiday schedule will run from Monday, Dec. 24, 2012 through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013. During that time all nonessential operations will be closed at all Kent State campuses. Regular university operations will resume on Wednesday, Jan.2, 2013.
This year the Christmas and New Year's holidays fall on a Tuesday. Classified and unclassified employees will receive paid leave for four days, Dec. 26, 27 28 and 31. The paid leave is in addition to the paid holidays of Dec. 24, 25 and Jan. 1.
The holiday schedule applies to classified and unclassified employees who normally accrue vacation throughout the year. Employees not eligible for the paid leave include student employees, classified temporary staff, temporary agency staff, unclassified nine and 10-month term appointments, short-term unclassified appointments, unclassified intermittent appointments and employees in a lay-off status.
The impact of the holiday schedule for 12-month faculty who accrue vacation is the same as for unclassified employees who accrue vacation.
