As you prepare to hire staff for the fall please consider the impact of an employee’s end date on whether or not they are eligible to be paid for Winter Closure. Auxiliary and regular support staff need to work their last normal working date prior to winter closure and their first normal working day after the closure in order to be eligible.
A common situation that departments face is when an auxiliary or regular support staff member has an end date of December 31. Because the staff member doesn’t work the first day after winter closer, January 2, they will not be eligible to be paid for Winter Closure. Please visit the Stat Holidays and Winter Closure webpage or contact your Employment and Pay Advisor for more information.
