* Veteran's Day
* Personnel Specialists Meeting

Veteran's Day
As a reminder, Veteran's Day, Tuesday, November 11, is an official state holiday. However, in accordance with Board of Regents policy and the KSU Faculty Handbook it is not a Regents unclassified holiday because classes are in session.

Any full-time CLASSIFIED employee who does not work on Veteran's Day will receive Holiday Credit (HDC) equal to the number of hours normally scheduled to work. A part-time classified employee who works a regular schedule receives Holiday Credit (HDC) equal to whatever pay the employee would receive for that day if it were not a holiday. A part-time classified employee who works an irregular schedule does not receive holiday credit (HDC) but is paid at the time and half rate for those hours worked on a holiday.

Any full-time or part-time classified employee who works on the holiday will use either Holiday Comp Time 1.5 (HCP) or Holiday Pay 1.5 (HDP) to record all hours worked on the holiday.

A TEMPORARY classified employee will NOT receive Holiday Credit (HDC) but is paid at the time and half rate for those hours worked on a holiday. Holiday Pay 1.5 (HDP) will be used to record time worked on the holiday for a temporary classified employee.

Veteran's Day is not a Board of Regents unclassified holiday and should be treated like any other work day for all UNCLASSIFIED employees. If an unclassified employee takes the day off, they will need to use leave (i.e., vacation leave, sick leave, etc.). Do not use any holiday earnings codes for your unclassified employees for that day.

Questions may be directed to Alma Deutsch at (785) 532-1448 or Kristi Fronce at (785) 532-1889.
