In appreciation for the efforts of UNM Employees, Interim President Abdallah has approved Monday, July 3, 2017 as a holiday. This holiday will be in addition to Tuesday, July 4, 2017, which was already designated as a holiday.
Per University Administrative Policy (UAP) #3405, Holidays, only regular full-time or part-time employees, working twenty (20) or more hours per week, are eligible to be paid for holiday time off. Employees must either work or be on paid leave on scheduled work days before and after the holiday in order to be eligible for holiday pay.
Non-exempt UNM employees required to work on July 3 or July 4 will be paid for the hours worked at a rate of one-and-a-half (1/2) times their regular rate, and will also be given time off in lieu of the holiday in accordance with UAP #3405. Exempt employees who are required to work on a holiday will be paid their regular salary and given another day off.
When a holiday falls on an employee’s regular day off, the holiday is normally granted on the workday immediately preceding or following the employee’s regular day off, but may be granted, by mutual agreement between the employee and the supervisor, at another time within ninety (90) days.
