Responsible Office – Department:
Effective Date of Policy:
February 2, 2021
When it is necessary to close the university because of snow or other emergency, the official announcement that the university is closed will be broadcast over the local television and radio stations.
The university has also developed an Emergency Notification System which will send text or voice mail messages to your cell or home telephone. Please ensure your phone number is up to date in ADP Workforce Now.
When the university is officially closed because of snow, DO NOT attempt to drive on campus, unless you have been designated as ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL by your supervisor. If you find it absolutely necessary to visit, please park your car off campus. This will enable us to clear the parking lots of snow. ALL FACILITIES/CLEANING PERSONNEL ARE CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL AND MUST REPORT TO WORK.
Full Time and Limited Full Time Employees
When the university is officially closed, you will receive full pay for time lost. When the university is open, but you are unable to report for work, you may charge your time to personal leave or vacation pay.
Part Time, Temporary and Per Diem Employees
You are paid for actual hours on the job. If you are sent home early on a work day because of weather or other emergency, you will be paid for the total number of hours originally scheduled to work.
