Adverse Weather Conditions
Revised April 1, 2008
The university will generally not close because of adverse weather. It is the university's policy to operate at all times and employees are expected to report for duty unless notified otherwise.
If adverse weather creates extreme travel hazards for an Hourly employee traveling to or from the workplace, the employee should make every effort to notify the departmental supervisor that he or she will not report to work. Such absences are without pay.
If adverse weather conditions are widespread and extremely severe, the provost or chancellor may close the campus. Local radio stations announce such a closure. Such absences are without pay for Hourly employees.
There are some jobs which require employees to work when the campus is closed. Supervisors are to notify employees in advance which jobs are subject to this requirement.
Hourly employees who are required to work when the campus is closed due to adverse weather on their scheduled workday will receive pay for the hours worked plus additional pay at the rate of 1½ times the hourly rate.
