CTO Reminders

The arrival of the peak summer vacation season is an opportune time for a couple of CTO usage reminders.  Benefits-eligible staff employees please note that:

Floating Holidays

“Floating Holidays” are those holidays on which the College is partially open for business (that is, some departments are staffed and others are not).  Designated Floating Holidays are: Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.   With July 4th right around the corner, please remember to enter CTO time if you are usually scheduled to work on Thursdays but you do not work on Independence Day.

Exempt Staff and Partial Day CTO Usage

Exempt staff are reminded that CTO should generally be used in full day increments only.  Exceptions to the full day policy are allowed during approved leaves of absence, and occasionally when there is a need for a period of frequent partial-day absences.  In either case, partial day absences must be pre-approved before use.

For further details regarding these or other paid-time-off topics please see Section 4 of the Employee Handbook http://www.middlebury.edu/about/handbook.

Labor Day Floating Holiday

Monday, September 5, is Labor Day, a floating holiday under the College’s holiday policy. Here’s some helpful information to help you record your time in BannerWeb based on a variety of different situations.

If you do not work on Labor Day…

  • All benefits-eligible staff should record CTO if they do not work on a floating holiday (if the holiday falls on a day they would normally work).
  • Non-benefits-eligible staff do not record anything if they do not work.

If you work on Labor Day…

  • Hourly (non-exempt) staff who do work on Labor Day should record their worked hours as usual.
  • Salaried (exempt) staff do not need to make any entry if they work this day.

For more information about floating holidays, please see section 4.4 of the Employee Handbook, online at www.middlebury.edu/about/handbook/employee/time_away/holidays.
