In addition to the seven holidays granted in TBR Policy 5:01:01:10, six administrative closing days shall be designated as time off from work with pay for regular full-time and part-time employees. Certain days, such as the Friday after Thanksgiving Day and those during the week of Christmas when classes are not in session, may be designated as days of administrative closing each year by the University President, with the approval of the Chancellor.
At times it may be necessary for the University President to declare specific hours as emergency closing as the result of inclement weather or other emergency situations. In such cases, regular full-time and part-time employees on the active payroll who are scheduled to work during the declared times of closing will be granted time off from work with pay. Employees who are not scheduled to work will not be paid for the emergency closing.
If an emergency closing has not been declared due to inclement weather and an employee is prevented from reporting to work for his/her normally scheduled working hours, annual leave or leave without pay will be charged; or, the employee may be allowed with institutional approval to make up the time lost.
Regular part-time employees will be affected on a pro rata basis in each of the provisions listed above.
