Holiday Schedule and University Closings

No, wage employees only get paid for actual hours worked.
As a full-time employee, if you are required to work a holiday you will be paid your regular pay plus you will earn compensatory leave. Compensatory leave is capped at 8 hours for working holidays by Virginia Department of Human Resource Management policy. So even if you work more than eight hours, you will only receive eight hours of compensatory leave.
The university uses all media sources to broadcast closings and delays. Radio, television, university website, and email are used. The most convenient way to learn of university closings and/or delays is to sign up to receive emergency notifications through MyMadison.
Only those full-time employees deemed as essential/designated will be paid at the regular pay plus earn compensatory leave for time worked during an inclement weather closure or delay. Employees that are deemed non-essential/non-designated will not receive compensatory leave for working during an inclement weather closure or delay.
