Weather Related Closure Premium Pay for January 4 and 5, 2018

Due to the conditions on Thursday January 4, 2018 and the forecast for Friday January 5, the College released non-essential personnel at 5PM on Thursday and suspended certain operations through 11:59PM Friday. Essential personnel were asked to remain on duty or report to duty after the Thursday at 5PM dismissal. We are pleased to announce some special arrangements for pay during the period from 5PM Thursday January 4 through 11:59PM Friday January 5, which is when normal operations resumed. Non-essential employees who were released Thursday will be paid their regular pay for the duration of their scheduled shift and benefits-eligible employees will not be required to use CTO. Nonexempt employees identified as essential personnel who worked past during that time frame will be paid their regular pay plus a premium which is the equivalent to time and a half of their regular hourly rate for each hour they worked between 5PM Thursday and 11:59PM Friday.

Affected nonexempt employees who worked any shifts between 5PM Thursday and 11:59PM Friday should enter their hours on their timesheets as follows:

  • Employees in non-essential positions who were sent home at 5PM Thursday and/or missed their shift Friday due to the closure should enter their time for the shift(s) they were scheduled to work as they normally would, as Regular and not CTO; please be sure to enter them on the correct shift.
  • Employees in essential positions should also enter their hours as they normally would.  To receive the premium pay, they should ALSO enter Holiday Pay Premium.  Please be sure to enter them on the correct shift.
  • Employees who had originally planned to use CTO before the announcement of the suspension of operations should enter their scheduled hours as CTO.

Human Resources has prepared a list of frequently asked questions regarding pay and time entry for the closure. That list can be found here

Please contact Perry Richards at x5882 if you have additional questions regarding your time entry.

News from the Office of Digital Learning

Updates

The Office of Digital Learning has recently begun a series on our blog about the newly-formed information environmentalism movement as an integral part of cultivating digital fluency. As Amy Collier writes in her post Attending to the Information Environment of the Web, “Misinformation on the web is polarizing us, it’s radicalizing us, and we should be paying attention.” Amy makes a call for higher education in general — and Middlebury in particular —  to lead the way in improving our information ecosystem. To learn more about information environmentalism, and to join in, we invite you to begin by reading Amy’s post.

To learn more about other projects and initiatives supported by the Office of Digital Learning, we invite you to peruse This Week in ODL, a series on our blog where readers can find updates on the projects, news, and developments underway at our office. And don’t forget to check our Projects page where you can find descriptions of and links to our many projects.
