Hello, fellow Shocker family! Earlier this fall, I announced that all benefits-eligible employees were being provided with two personal days to use during the upcoming campus shutdown. I’m pleased to now announce that — in alignment with the other Regents universities — WSU is providing benefits-eligible employees with two more personal days away from work, for a total of four. The two new days — as well as the two previously announced days — can be used any time between now and Jan. 31, 2023. Please note this is a change from the previous announcement, meaning you have four personal days now to use for either the campus shutdown or another time in the month of January. The days will be listed as “Additional Personal Days-2022” when you complete your payroll. See these frequently asked questions for more information on your leave days. I hope you enjoy this extra time, which is no doubt well-deserved! Thank every one of you for all you do. Go Shockers!
