An announcement canceling classes does not mean there is a cancellation of work; it will specifically mention that Boston College is "closed" when employees are not expected to report.
When work is canceled, some essential activities in certain offices may need to be maintained. It is expected that some arrangement for coverage or standby will be made between the office administrator and staff. If an employee is required to work on such a day, compensatory time off will be provided to him or her and will be scheduled at a time that is mutually convenient to the department and the employee.
The decision on early dismissal of employees because of weather conditions will be announced by the Department of Human Resources. This information will be made available on BCInfo or at ext.2-INFO. Unless otherwise notified, all staff are expected to remain at work until closing.
