Working at CSU

CSU's 2013-14 holiday schedule announced

February 20, 2013

Official holidays for university employees can now be added to calendars.

Colorado State University’s holiday schedule for the 2013-14 fiscal year includes these 10 days when the university will be officially closed:

  • Thursday, July 4, 2013
  • Monday, September 2, 2013
  • Thursday, November 28, 2013
  • Friday, November 29, 2013
  • Wednesday, December 25, 2013
  • Thursday, December 26, 2013
  • Friday, December 27, 2013
  • Wednesday, January 1, 2014
  • Monday, January 20, 2014
  • Monday, May 26, 2014

These holidays may not be the same as for other state workers, since the State Personnel Board has given academic institutions the authority to substitute days that coincide with the academic schedule for the 10 legal holidays. Further, individual departments whose responsibilities dictate unusual work schedules may establish holiday schedules which deviate from the University’s schedule, according to the Human Resources Manual.

Hourly employees are not entitled to payment for holidays unless work is actually performed on the day of observance.

Time off for employees to participate in religious services (e.g., Good Friday) should be charged to annual leave or time must be made up by rearrangement of the work schedule within the same workweek.  Free time off for religious services is not authorized.

While the 2001 State Legislature designated March 31 as Cesar Chavez Day, it  was not added as a paid state holiday.  Employees and departments interested in additional information on Caesar Chavez Day should contact Human Resources or review the material under the Benefits Section of the HR website.
