Federal offices were ordered closed on December 5 and December 24 for the federal Day of Mourning and an additional federal holiday, respectively. CIRES Leadership decided to apply the Governor’s additional day of leave and administrative leave to these situations for all CIRES employees working at a federal location. In addition, CIRES Leadership worked with University HR to determine the appropriate way to report these situations.

Therefore, unless you received approval for an alternate arrangement, all CIRES employees working at a federal location will need to enter “Administrative Leave” for both December 5 and December 24, 2018, to ensure these dates are properly documented in the system and will need to submit their monthly timesheet for supervisor approval. If you have already submitted a timesheet that is not in alignment with this email, you will need to resubmit a timesheet that follows the direction provided above. If you have any questions about this email, please let me know. Thank you and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
