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 5PM 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 5PM 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 5PM Friday.
Affected nonexempt employees who worked any shifts between 5PM Thursday and 5PM 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
