All Kent State University campuses will operate on a holiday schedule during the last week of December. The holiday schedule will run from Sunday, Dec. 25, 2011, through Monday, Jan. 2, 2012; normal operations will resume with the first shift on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
During this time, all nonessential operations will be closed. Eligible classified and unclassified employees will receive paid leave for any regularly scheduled work time from Dec. 28 through Dec. 30. The paid leave is in addition to the paid holidays of Dec. 26, 27 and Jan. 2.
The list of operations for university departments and campuses during this period is available online. The list indicates whether a department will be open with normal operations, open with partial coverage or operations suspended. If you do not see your department listed or have questions about its status, please contact your manager or unit leader.
Please read the important employee information below related to the holiday schedule. You can also view a list of frequently asked questions on the Human Resources holiday schedule website.
Full- and part-time classified and unclassified employees who normally accrue vacation throughout the year are eligible to receive paid leave for the additional days.
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 assignments 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.
Employees required to work during the additional days off (the days other than the three paid holidays) will be paid under the following guidelines:
Faculty and unclassified employees with direct deposit who are scheduled to receive their second pay of the month on Dec. 30 will be paid on Dec. 23. This only applies to unclassified staff with direct deposit. The Dec. 30 pay for classified employees will remain the same.
All employees â€” student, classified, unclassified and faculty â€” who do not have direct deposit will have their paycheck mailed to their home address on Dec. 29; it will be mailed to the address listed on your check, so employees should make sure that address is current.
Employees are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit. This can be completed at any time by going to the My HR tab in FlashLine. Once there, click on Employment Details, Direct Deposit, and follow the instructions to enroll.
