Winter Campus Curtailment 2012-2013

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Pamela Peterson, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Academic Personnel and Interim Assistant Vice Chancellor, Staff Human Resources

Our 2012-2013 Winter Campus Curtailment is scheduled for the time period of December 22, 2012 through January 1, 2013.
  •     December 24, 25, 31 and January 1 are paid university holidays (if eligibility criteria are met)
  •     December 26, 27 and 28 are not paid university holidays
These curtailment days may result in employees using vacation, accrued compensatory time off, or leave without pay for December 26, 27 and 28, 2012. 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 who are 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 curtailment.

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. This memo will explain the required procedure to ensure that heat is supplied to appropriate working areas.
