2021 Summer Hours

“Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days

June 7, 2021, through Aug. 6, 2021 - Note: Aug. 9 is NOT a day off

Please note that the University Fourth of July holiday falls on Monday (July 5) and Tuesday (July 6) this year. Therefore, employees will be expected to report to work on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday that week unless they have scheduled vacation days off. 

  • It is critical that departments remain staffed from Monday through Friday.
  • “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days are for employees who are normally scheduled to work 5 days per week. On “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days, if any employee is normally scheduled to work 5 days per week, with supervisor approval and appropriate department scheduling, the employee may take a Monday or a Friday off with pay for that 1 Monday or 1 Friday per week.
  • Staff should use the code “9999990007 - Unscheduled Close” in Time-Clock-Plus (TCP) for the “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days. Administrators should use the code “Unscheduled Close” when scheduling the “Monday or Friday Off” Days in the TCP Request Manager.
  • “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days up to a maximum of 8.0 hours per week are to be used ONLY to bring employees’ total hours for the work week to their normally scheduled total hours. “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days (hours) are not intended to bring employees’ hours above their normally scheduled hours for each week.
  • Overtime pay is granted when an hourly employee actually works more than 40 hours in a week. “Summer Monday and Friday Off” Days (hours) are not included in the calculation of overtime.
  • Employees who choose to work all 5 days, may not “bank” the missed “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days for another week. They will be paid for the days worked, and no additional pay will be due them. 
  • If a non-essential employee actually works their usual number of days during this period of time, they cannot record “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days during that week or be paid for extra hours for the time not taken. 
  • Every effort will be made to provide Essential Personnel with one “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Day during each week worked during the specified period of time. The day may be a day other than a Monday or a Friday to allow the supervisor to cover the department while providing the privilege to all shift workers. “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Days for Essential Personnel must be taken within that specific work week and may not be “saved” for a later time. If due to business reasons the supervisor is not able to provide one “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Day per week to an employee, that employee will be paid for the hours they work that week, plus the normally scheduled hours for one unscheduled close day in place of the  “Summer Monday or Friday Off” Day, not to exceed 8.0 hours.
