PTO Protocol

November 4, 2022

University Human Resources (UHR) issues the following guidance to the OHIO community regarding the upcoming holidays, usage of paid time off and alternative work arrangements.

On November 4, 2022, UHR published the annual holiday memo which specifies days on which the university will be closed for observed holidays. UHR also posts the Winter Break Closure dates on the UHR site.

As a reminder, the university will be open for normal business on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, the day prior to the Thanksgiving day holiday and Friday, December 23, 2022, the last working day prior to Winter Break Closure. It is anticipated that many employees may wish to request time off on these days. UHR encourages units to proactively plan staffing levels and work with employees to ensure appropriate coverage. 

Any employee who does not work their normally scheduled shift during these days must utilize the appropriate paid time off (vacation, personal, or sick time). Employees should make their requests as soon as possible to allow supervisors proper time to plan for coverage. Note: Vacation and personal time will be approved at the discretion of the supervisor.  

Additionally, some employees may already be working or may request alternative work arrangements. Employees and supervisors should refer to policy 40.063: Flexible Work Schedule, Flexible Hours, and Flexplace for Administrators and Classified Employees in considerations of such requests. The policy outlines the process for requesting and using flexible workplace arrangements afforded under this policy.  

If employees or supervisors have any questions about paid time off or alternative work arrangements, they are encouraged to contact the UHR Employee Service Center at (740) 593-1636 or their HR Liaison.
