Appreciation Day Leave Instructions


This message has been approved by Renisha Gibbs, Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Finance & Administration Chief of Staff, for distribution to all Deans, Directors, and Department Heads.

As announced by President McCullough, all salaried and annual leave-earning employees (A&P, USPS, Executive Service, and 12-month faculty) hired before June 30, 2022, will receive an extra day off in the 2023 fiscal year. Full-time eligible employees will receive 8 hours of Appreciation Day leave. Part-time eligible employees will receive a prorated number of leave hours based on their FTE.

The Appreciation Day leave will be credited to each eligible employee and must be used in full by June 30, 2023. Similar to a Personal Holiday, Appreciation Day leave cannot be split over multiple days, does not carry any payout value, and is not eligible to roll to another leave type. Employees must receive supervisory approval before utilizing their Appreciation Day.

The Appreciation Day will be populated to the HR-OMNI timesheet no later than July 5, 2022, but is available for use as early as July 1, 2022. The use of any leave type cannot cause an employee to exceed their FTE for the workweek. Therefore, employees on altered work schedules may need to adjust their workweek and only work the appropriate number of hours during the week they use their Appreciation Day.
