Consistent with HR 14-17-3 “Office Hours and Institutional Closure Policy”, Interim Chancellor Van Gruensven has authorized the closure of applicable offices on Friday, November 29, 2019 for all UW-Green Bay Campuses. Area leaders will have the discretion to determine essential and non-essential functions and subsequent individual office closures for the day. Areas which are identified as essential functions under the policy will be required to be staffed on November 29. The provision of essential services on the Branch Campuses will be covered by the Green Bay Campus Offices (e.g. GBOSS will function as the office for all Branch Campuses).
Employees who choose to work on Nov. 29, 2019 must receive approval from their immediate supervisor and may be subject to reassignment based on institutional needs. Employees who elect to take this day off must submit the absence request through HRS and have sufficient vacation/personal days to be absent on Nov. 29. This closure does not represent an additional holiday.
Offices that close are asked to post notice on the departmental website and display a notice of office closure a week in advance, including notice of when normal business hours will resume.
