Important HR Changes

Holiday Calendar and E210

In response to the recent change to the University's Holiday Calendar, the ½ day holiday prep code (HP) has been removed from the E210 code drop down box and December 24 and December 31 have been changed to full day Holidays. All December 2014 timesheets submitted prior to 09/09/2014 have been reset.

Weather Closures

The changes to the closure policy redefine required attendance employees with consideration to flexible work locations and flexible work schedules to accommodate the need for business continuity while the university is closed for weather or other emergencies. http://hrnt.jhu.edu/pol-man/appendices/sectionJ.cfm (Effective 9/01/2014)

The amendments include the obligations of required attendance employees (those who must report to work on-site of the university); specifications for employees required to work at alternative locations; and specifications for employees asked to work as needed during closure(s) not previously designated as required attendance or required to work.

Except as noted below, when the University is closed, employees receive their regular pay for the period of the closure.

The proposed changes to the pay practices set the pay rates at standard straight time for hours worked during the closure (up to 40 hours in a work week) and not at time and a half the standard pay rates. These pay practices apply regardless of required attendance, required to work or requested to work. The section “Liberal Leave” has been eliminated from the policy.
