Hourly Employees: Hourly employees other than those in Class Codes 1150, 1151, 1868, 1870, 1871, 1872, 1874, 1875, 1876, 7171, 7172 and 7930 should be permitted informal time off based on the following table provided that the employee is scheduled to work on the campus’ last work day prior to the holiday closure and is still on the active payroll on that date (has not or will not be separated with a prior effective date):HOURS SCHEDULED INScheduling of informal time off should be managed in such a manner as to minimize disruption to campus operations.
