Winter Campus Curtailment 2011-2012

To: UCSC Academic and Staff Employees

From: Charlotte Moreno, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Staff Human Resources Pamela Peterson, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Academic Personnel

Our 2011-2012 Winter Campus Curtailment is scheduled for the time period of December 23, 2011 through January 2, 2012.

  • December 23, 26, 30 and January 2 are paid university holidays (if eligibility criteria are met)
  • December 27, 28, and 29 are not paid university holidays

These curtailment days may result in employees using vacation, accrued compensatory time off, or leave without pay for December 27, 28, and 29, 2011. For employees who may not have sufficient accumulated vacation, up to three (3) days of vacation leave may be used in advance of actual accruals during the campus curtailment period. In addition, those employees normally required to wait six (6) months before using accrued vacation will be allowed to use their accrued vacation hours even if the required waiting period has not been completed.

Due to the diverse responsibilities of academic appointees and the flexibility in performing their obligations, it is anticipated that some academic appointees will continue working during campus closure.

Units planning to maintain operations as usual during the campus curtailment period must receive approval from their respective Principal Officer or designee and should refer to the “Exceptions to Campus Closure” memo that will be forthcoming from Physical Plant in November. This memo will explain the required procedure to ensure that heat is supplied to appropriate working areas.
