Early release policy begins May 24

Vice President for Human Resources Leo V. Sullivan has announced the summer early release policy schedule. From May 24 through Aug. 23, most University offices will close at 3 p.m. on Fridays.

Sullivan issued several guidelines associated with the policy:

-It applies to Friday afternoons between 3 and 5 p.m. and may not be used to alter work hours at any other time.

-The shorter work day applies to those who are normally scheduled to work after 3 p.m. on Fridays.

-If an employee is required to work past 3 p.m., he or she may receive compensatory time off on another day approved by the supervisor.
-An employee who takes a vacation or sick day on Friday is charged with a full day and does not get an "extra" two hours to use at another time.
