Veterans Day Observance: November 12

This year, Veterans Day falls on Sunday, November 11, and is therefore observed as a state holiday on Monday, November 12, in accordance with NYS attendance rules. Classes are scheduled on Monday, November 12, and the college will be open. Department heads and supervisors should communicate to their classified and professional employees whether they will be required to work on that day.

For employees who are required to work, the following state attendance rules will apply:

Classified employees who work on November 12 will be compensated according to their holiday waiver status. Those who have not elected to waive additional money for holiday work will receive holiday pay per their bargaining unit agreements. Employees who have elected to waive additional money for holiday work will receive compensatory time off instead of additional holiday pay. Classified employees who wish to inquire about their current holiday waiver status may call the Payroll Office at 878-4124.

UUP-represented and M/C employees who are eligible to observe holidays and are required to work on November 12 will be granted a compensatory day off. The compensatory day off should be scheduled at a time agreeable to the employee and his or her supervisor within one year of the holiday.

Employees who are not required to work and choose not to work on November 12 do not need to charge leave accruals for that day.
