LeadingEdition: E-Newsletter for Purdue University Supervisors

Winter is upon us:
Reminders about hazardous weather


During periods of adverse weather conditions, pay practices do not change unless the University president declares a "Snow Recess," which explicitly tells staff not to report for work. The president, executive vice president, and provost are the only persons who can declare a Snow Recess.


During all other periods of bad weather, regular biweekly paid staff and operations/technical assistants who are absent from work, arrive late, or leave early, must charge their time to vacation, personal holiday (if eligible), or absence without pay. This policy applies even if the department head has advised staff to be absent, arrive late, or leave early due to weather conditions. Departments are encouraged to be flexible in the approval of leave time when safety is a concern.
