To enable and encourage attendance at the inauguration ceremony, all employees not essential to running inauguration events may leave work at 3 p.m. on Friday. (Classes will continue as scheduled.) The event starts at 4 p.m. on the Quad followed by a reception at 5:30 p.m.
Some staff members will be required to remain at work to perform essential tasks. Because the compensation for these employees reflects the need for their services in such circumstances, they will not receive extra pay or time off for work performed during the early leave period. However, any approved hours worked in excess of an hourly employee’s normal hours will, of course, be paid under the usual overtime rules.
