Administrative leave guidelines for university closure due to Tropical Storm Hermine

In anticipation of Tropical Storm Hermine, the university closed at 4 p.m. September 1 and remained closed all day September 2, 2016.  Administrative leave is granted to eligible employees who were scheduled to work during this time. Anyone who was on pre-approved leave will remain on such leave and will not be eligible to receive the administrative leave.

All non-exempt (excluding OPS) and USPS exempt employees will need to report the number of hours they were scheduled to work during the closing via Weekly Elapsed Screen using the “900-Administrative Leave-EMC” time reporting code. TEAMS exempt employees and faculty will not need to record this time through Weekly Elapsed Screen. OPS employees are not eligible for administrative leave.

Essential personnel — those who worked during the closing — who are non-exempt or USPS exempt will need to record the time they worked during the closing along with the administrative leave in order to accrue special compensatory leave appropriately in addition to their normal pay. If the compensatory leave is not used by the employee within six months following its accrual, the employee will be paid for the leave.

TEAMS exempt employees who were required to work during the emergency closing are also eligible for compensatory leave at the discretion of the supervisor — although this compensatory leave is handled at the department level and not accrued via the myUFL system. Sworn law enforcement officers, faculty, and graduate assistants are not eligible for compensatory leave under this policy.

Please note that the current pay period closes September 8, so time and leave entry must be made before then.
