Get information on pay, time off during holiday season

Nov. 18, 2015

As 2015 winds down, here is a reminder about the year's final paychecks, and how and when to use time off during the holiday season.

Personal day calendar

Don't forget these important dates for year-end payroll and holiday time off.

Year-end pay dates

For support, service, and PAO and PAU professional staff, the last pay date of 2015 is Thursday, Dec. 31, 2015, for time worked between Dec. 6, 2015, and Dec. 19, 2015. PAE professional staff will receive pay for work during December 2015 on Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.

Use of holiday hours

Unused holiday accruals from 2014 must be used by the end of the last pay period of 2015.

For support, service, and PAO and PAU staff, holiday time off earned in 2014 must be used by Dec. 19, 2015. For PAE staff, holiday time off earned in 2014 must be used by Dec. 31, 2015.

Use of paid time off during departmental closings

Paid holidays for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day will be Friday, Dec. 25, 2015, and Friday, Jan. 1, 2016, respectively. To receive pay for the time a department is closed between these dates, support and service staff must use accrued vacation hours or accrued compensatory time off; PAO and PAU staff must use PTO or accrued compensatory time off; and PAE staff must use accrued PTO. Service and support staff cannot use income protection time and professional staff cannot use PTO sick bank time to cover this time unless the reason for doing so qualifies under the provisions of the personnel policies governing these categories of paid time off.
