SNR holiday hours announced

In a recent email to all employees at the School of Natural Resources, Corey Cook, the business manager of the Natural Resources Business Center, announced a reminder about the coming holiday schedule for UNL and SNR.

UNL will be closed Monday, Dec. 24, 2012, through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, except for essential designated operations. Any employee required to work must have the supervisor contact interim director Tala Awada for approval prior to the shutdown.

The scheduled holiday closing dates are listed below, and posting determinations will be uploaded into the payroll system automatically. There is no need to submit leave requests through FireFly.

Holiday closing dates and posting determinations:
■ Dec. 24 — Floating holiday, vacation or leave without pay
■ Dec. 25 — Holiday
■ Dec. 26-28 — Floating holiday, vacation or leave without pay
■ Dec. 31 — Vacation
■ Jan. 1 — Holiday
■ Jan. 2 — Return to work

Employees who have not accumulated sufficient floating holiday hours to post to Dec. 24 and 26-28, may use vacation or take leave without pay. The Natural Resources Business Center will automatically post vacation leave to accommodate these hours, or contact Jolene Foster (472-7788) to request leave without pay.

For employees completing time sheets, please follow the below schedule for time sheet submission:
■ Dec. 7-13 — No later than Dec. 13.
■ Dec. 14-27 — No later than Jan. 3.
(Hours may be approximated and adjusted later.)
