January 7, 2010

Weather conditions are worsening, and although the campus remains open for business, supervisors are encouraged to allow non-critical personnel to leave early. To ease traffic flow off campus, a phased evening exit is being recommended. With supervisory approval, employees who work in buildings south of Michigan Street may begin leaving campus at 2:30 p.m. Employees who work in buildings north of Michigan Street may begin leaving campus at 3:00 p.m. Critical personnel including but not limited to those who must address the weather situation (snow removal, traffic, etc.) are not permitted to leave unless specifically authorized by their supervisors.
For employees who leave early, the following options are available so that staff do not suffer loss of pay:
•Use accrued paid-time-off benefits
•Use accrued compensatory time
•Make up the work on an hour-for-hour basis during the same workweek
•Use an absence without pay but with paid-time-off accruals
This announcement does not affect employees who work evening and night shifts on January 7, 2010. Medical and dental students should follow their schools’ protocol to find out if this announcement applies to them.
