2015-2016 Winter Holiday Closure

The UCR campus is scheduled to close for the holiday season beginning Thursday, Dec. 24, 2015 through Friday, Jan. 1, 2016 and will reopen on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.

University-paid holidays will be observed while the campus is closed Dec. 24, 25, 31, and Jan.1, 2016. Dec. 28, 29, 30 are not paid holidays. Staff employees and those academic employees who accrue vacation leave are required to use vacation, compensatory time (if available) or take leave without pay for these work days.

In accordance with University personnel policies and applicable labor agreements, employees have the choice of the following options to cover the non-paid holidays:

  • Employees may utilize vacation days in advance of their actual accrual.
  • Newly hired employees may utilize vacation accruals prior to having completed six continuous months on pay status.
  • Employees with accrued compensatory time may elect to use it to cover the three days off or to offset the use of vacation time.
  • Employees who do not wish to use vacation or compensatory time off may request leave without pay based on departmental approval. In this case, employees will not lose hourly vacation or sick leave accruals for these three days.

Employees should notify their supervisors in advance as to which option or combination of options they choose to use.

For exclusively represented employees, these closure days will be handled in accordance with existing contract provisions and are subject to discussion and/or collective bargaining where applicable.

Comments or questions regarding application of personnel policies during the closure may be sent to Heidie Rhodes, Human Resources at heidie.rhodes@ucr.edu or extension 2-2463.

Comments or questions regarding application of collective bargaining agreements may be sent to Paul Wood, Employee and Labor Relations at paul.wood@ucr.edu or extension 2-5092.
