Human Resources Newsletter

August 8, 2008

Topics included in this issue:

Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day will be observed, Tuesday, November 11. This year, Veteran's Day is a designated holiday for both classified and unclassified employees; however, it is not a student holiday and classes will be in session.

Benefit eligible classified and unclassified employees will receive holiday credit equal to the number of hours normally scheduled to work that day. The holiday credit will automatically appear in the time entry page for full-time employees.

In addition to holiday credit, ANY CLASSIFIED employee who works on Veteran.s Day, regardless of FLSA status (exempt or nonexempt), will use HCP (Holiday Comp Time 1.5) or HDP (Holiday Pay 1.5) to record actual hours worked on the holiday.

In addition to holiday credit, any EXEMPT UNCLASSIFIED employee who is required/directed to work on the holiday will receive compensatory time to be used later. To accurately record the actual number of hours worked, use HCC (Holiday Comp Time 1.0).

In addition to holiday credit, any NONEXEMPT UNCLASSIFIED employee who is required/directed to work on the holiday will receive compensatory time. To accurately record the actual number of hours worked, use HCP (Holiday Comp Time 1.5) or HDP (Holiday Pay 1.5).

Watch for detailed instructions and scenarios in the October 3 HR Newsletter. Questions may be directed to Alma Deutsch at (785) 532-1448 or Kristi Fronce at (785) 532-1889.

Longevity Bonus Payments

Classified employees hired or rehired on or after June 15, 2008 are no longer eligible for a longevity bonus payment as amended by House Bill 2916. This change should be explained to any classified employee who is being rehired on or after June 15, 2008 following a break in service. For these individuals, prior years of benefit eligible employment will continue to count toward the service date for leave accrual and retirement purposes, but will no longer result in a longevity bonus payment.
