Employees: Plan for Holiday Shutdown

Human Resources encourages employees to plan ahead for the personal leave time (holiday, vacation, discretionary day and compensatory time) they will need to ensure sustainment of pay over the Holiday Shutdown.

The shutdown will begin at the end of the day on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022, and reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023. The shutdown is nine days, two of which are paid holidays. At this point, WSU does not anticipate providing additional paid time off such as administrative leave during this year’s shutdown; therefore, benefit eligible employees will need to manage personal leave banks and compensatory time to cover the seven non-holiday days of shutdown. If this changes, we will provide further communication.
