POLICY STATEMENT

(1) The following are institution holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The institutions will be closed on these days. However, units deemed by the institution to provide a necessary function may remain open at the discretion of the institution. Other holidays designated by state law, such as Veteran's Day, Presidents' Day and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday, are not institution holidays unless the institution is closed by a discretionary act of the president. Institution presidents may designate the day after Thanksgiving as an institution holiday in lieu of one of the listed discretionary holidays.

(2) Any business transaction required or permitted to be performed on a holiday designated by state law may be performed on the next succeeding business day without penalty, even though the institution may be open on the holiday.

(3) Holidays for academic staff shall be those days designated as institution holidays (as described in section (1) of this rule), holidays designated by faculty collective bargaining agreements, and any additional day designated by the Governor.

(4) Holidays observed by classified employees are established by the Executive Department or by collective bargaining agreements.
