4.06 Religious Holiday Observance


Provides guidance for leave requests relating to religious holidays.

Policy Statement

University personnel may, upon written request, be granted leave from campus duties for observance of religious holidays. Such leave requests will normally be granted unless a resulting absence would cause an undue hardship or create an emergency condition which otherwise could not be met. Leave requests and appropriate approvals for observance of religious holidays are to be processed prior to the leave period in accordance with standard university absence request procedures. Leave will be arranged in accordance with applicable policies/ Agreement provisions (e.g., vacations, compensatory time, or leave without pay).
