Policies assist participation in Spring Fling

Spring Fling, the annual appreciation event for faculty, staff, graduate student staff, and retirees, is set for 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 16. Lunch lines will open at 11:30 a.m. at the southeast entrance to the East Gymnasium.

President Martin Jischke has asked deans, directors, and department or office heads to use Spring Fling as an opportunity to show �special appreciation to support staff� when making arrangements for office staffing during the day of the event.

All staff can attend Spring Fling without loss of pay, vacation, or personal holiday, according to University policy.

To help facilitate attendance at Spring Fling, Human Resource Services offers guidelines for scheduling staff:


Attendance is covered in �worked regular� pay status for staff attending during normally scheduled work hours.


Temporary staff can attend if work schedules permit, but not in pay status.


Staff scheduled on the evening or night shifts and those not normally scheduled to work May 16 are invited to attend. Adjustments to work schedules normally are not made to enable these staff to attend in pay status.


Staff members are not expected to return to work if one hour or less remains in their work day.


Staff on vacation or sick leave on May 16 should remain on such status for the day. Regular pay status is not applicable for such staff.

For questions, contact the HRS Compensation Team at 49-40097.
