New Year’s Day is a family holiday and will be observed on Tuesday, January 1, 2013. There will be no administrative holiday for Monday, December 31, 2012.
Since classes are not in session, all administrative and academic offices may close. All departments should permit employees to receive time off. However, where continuous operation is required, schedules should be arranged to allow as many employees as possible to receive this day off.
All hourly employees will be given holiday pay equal to the regularly scheduled hours for this day. In addition to holiday pay, hourly employees who are required to work will be compensated at 1 ½ times the hourly rate for the number of hours worked.
If payroll questions arise, please contact your department’s OHR Payroll Representative; for specific information on reporting time for holidays please see our website at http://umaine.edu/hr/hr-resources/payroll/entering-elapsed-time-for-a-family-holiday/; for policy questions, please contact me at 1-1580.
