Holidays and University Closures

Holidays

Employees who work at least 24 hours per week on average all year or 60% of a full-time schedule are eligible to receive holiday pay. Employees who are employed less than 40 hours per week or 100% of a full-time schedule will earn holiday pay on a pro-rated basis and must work at least 50% of their regularly assigned work schedule in a given month.

The schedule of official University holidays is established annually. Additional time off may be granted by the President of the University. Eligible employees who are required to work on holidays will be given time + one-half. An employee must work and/or be in paid leave status on the last workday before, and the first workday after an official University closing to receive paid time off.

Winter Break

Employees who work at least 24 hours per week on average all year or 60% of a full-time schedule, are eligible to receive Winter Break. Employees who are employed less than 40 hours per week or 100% of a full-time schedule will earn Winter Break on a pro-rated basis, and must work at least 50% of their regularly assigned work schedule in a given month.

Willamette University is closed between December 24th and January 1st of each year. Employees who are eligible to receive holiday pay will be paid their regular pay for any day during that period that they are normally scheduled to work. Certain departments may be required to remain open during part of that time. Employees who are required to work any day(s) during that period may select another day(s) during the fiscal year with the approval of the employee's supervisor. These days must be taken before June 1, and cannot be carried over to the following year.
