Holiday break is good opportunity for using furlough days

The upcoming holiday closure is a good opportunity for faculty and staff to use some of their mandatory furlough days.

The official paid holidays are Dec. 24, 25 and Jan. 1. NAU also will be closed on Dec. 28, 29, 30 and 31, but these are not paid holidays.

The pay period of Dec. 14 to 27, with paychecks distributed Dec. 31, will be the third pay period of the month, which may help minimize the impact since voluntary deductions are not withheld.

NAU President John Haeger adopted the furlough plan in August as one way of addressing the university’s budget decreases. Employees whose salaries are $40,000 a year or more in FY2010 are responsible for taking three furlough days before July 1, 2010.

Faculty and staff can view the amount of furlough taken so far and how much is remaining to take by going to LOUIE where vacation and sick hours are tracked. (LOUIE > Self Service > Pay and Compensation > View Leave Balances). Department heads can view faculty and staff furlough balances by looking at biweekly leave reports (available through departmental timekeeping staff).

In early spring, reports on the progress of furloughs will be provided to the vice presidents for the purpose of monitoring and ensuring that furlough time is taken.

The mandatory furlough plan applies to regular benefit-eligible faculty, administrators, academic professionals, classified staff and service professionals. Details can be found here.
