Day after Thanksgiving
At all SUNY Poly locations, we will implement liberal leave on the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 25). It is anticipated that most employees will request to take off this day using their vacation, personal or holiday accruals. Professionals represented by UUP will use this day as the designated floating holiday for Election Day. Only the University Police force, and/or those employees who are deemed to have an essential function(s) will be required to report to work on this day. If you intend to request the day off on the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 25), please notify your supervisor no later than November 21, 2022.
SUNY Poly will exercise liberal leave for winter break from close of business on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, through Monday, January 2, 2023. SUNY Poly will then resume regular operations on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
This winter break period allows employees the opportunity to utilize their accrued leave and will help SUNY Poly realize significant cost savings in energy usage. We encourage all employees to plan for the use of their vacation, personal or holiday leave credits in such a way as to provide adequate credits for use during this period. Employees who prefer to work or who would be presented with an undue hardship due to a lack of leave accruals can work, with the understanding that building temperatures will be lowered during the period; these situations are to be discussed with your supervisor in advance as employees may not be able to work at their regular work location.
Although liberal leave is being implemented during this time, as always, any leave from work is at the sole discretion of the supervisor/management and requires advance approval. Also, liberal leave is assessed by management on a case-by-case basis and may change based on the operational needs of the campus.
