Furlough calendar clarifications, correction
Note: the following e-mail was sent on 8/10/09 to all faculty and staff.
This follow up to my Aug. 7, 2009 e-mail regarding the University's furlough calendar corrects a misprinted date and responds to some questions you raised. Many questions are also addressed at the Human Resources Web site at http://www.sfsu.edu/~hrwww/econ_times/econ_times.html
The correct closure dates for February are Feb. 19 and 22, two fixed furlough days.
In the second to last paragraph, among the other campus closures that should be listed is November 11, Veterans Day.
Several of you have asked for clarification about spring break and the procedure for picking up paychecks when pay day falls on a closure date. With thanks to the Academic Senate, Spring Break has been rescheduled to March 29, 2010 through April 3, 2010; campus closures are scheduled for March 29 through April 2. Please allow a day or two for various online calendars to reflect this change.
Three pay days fall on campus closure dates. They are December 31, 2009, March 31, 2010 and May 28, 2010. Human Resources will make some office hours available to release paychecks on those dates. The time, location and procedure will be announced as the dates approach. A reminder that direct deposit is available at SF State. Guidelines and information about eligibility are available on the Human Resources Web site at http://www.sfsu.edu/~hrwww/payroll/directdeposit.html
Again, my thanks to each of you for your patience and understanding as we work through the changes and adjustments associated with the furlough program.
