News and Announcements

Summer Flex Time

Beginning Monday, July 3, 2023, and continuing through Friday, September 1, 2023, full-time employees will have the opportunity to take off five flex days in addition to their regular vacation days. At Haub Law, summer flex days may be used from Monday, June 12, 2023, through Friday, August 11, 2023.

These summer flex days are in addition to your standard vacation allocation and are designed to be flexible. You may choose to take off five Fridays, or any other workdays, or a combination of half and full days. Each school or division will administer flexible summer hours based on its priorities and workload. Each dean and vice president will create a schedule that ensures we provide full service to students and all our other constituencies. Your dean or vice president will announce how the program will work within your area.

Vacation Rollover due to COVID-19 (2022 and 2023)

FY2022 Vacation Carryover

Through the pandemic, in recognition of the difficulty in scheduling time off, we have permitted some vacation rollover. Now, as we phase out of emergency mode and into our New Normal, we expect to return to a normal vacation policy. However, in this transition period, you may roll over up to three accrued, unused vacation days from this fiscal year into the next one (July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023). Those days will be added to your annual allotment and must be used by June 30, 2023. If you leave the University during the next fiscal year, the rollover days will not be paid out.

FY2023 Vacation Carryover

Full-time employees who have accrued, unused vacation days as of June 30, 2023 may carry over up to five unused, accrued vacation days from the 2022–2023 fiscal year into the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2023. Any vacation carryover must be used by October 31, 2023. If you leave the University in the new fiscal year, unused rollover vacation carryover days will not be paid out.
