The information below, regarding extended hours exceptions, holidays, season days and days of special observances, is designed to assist departments and individuals in their planning efforts for the remainder of this year and the coming year.

It is important to remember that all offices need to observe their normal schedules except for the days listed below. Deans, directors and supervisors are strongly encouraged to make every effort to grant vacation requests during the holiday season, to the extent that the department hours of operation and needs are met.

Please direct special attention to work scheduling requirements for those single days that fall between a holiday and a weekend (ex. Friday, January 2, 2015).  It is recognized that most employees will elect to schedule vacation days on these dates subject to minimal department needs as determined by Deans, directors and supervisors. 

The schedule for the remainder of this year, and all of 2014, is as follows:

*Season Days – Employees who work on a Season Day will receive an equivalent amount of vacation hours as an addition to their vacation accrual.  They may then schedule this vacation time at anytime during the year by requesting vacation time through their appropriate supervisor.  Please see the Standard Practice Guide 201.26-1 located at http://spg.umich.edu/policy/201.26-1 for additional information.

Employees in bargaining units observe Holidays and Season Days as indicated in their respective collective bargaining agreements.

Because other days may be of more significance than a University-designated holiday, a staff member may request approval to substitute up to three (3) holidays of his/her choice for any three (3) University holidays.  Written request of substitution(s) for the upcoming fiscal year must be given to the immediate supervisor on or before July 1st of that year.

A reminder notice of these days will be sent from the Flint - Human Resources Office one week prior to each observance.  Any questions regarding scheduling, flex time, impact on union employees or offices with 24/7 shifts should be directed to the Flint - Human Resources office at 762-3150.
