Veterans Day

The University of Kansas will remain open on Veterans Day and scheduled classes will be in session. Only those employees required to conduct necessary business should be requested to work.


All regular unclassified fiscal year faculty, academic staff, university support staff, and unclassified professional staff are eligible to observe Veterans Day and receive Holiday Credit.


Holiday Compensation Policy

If you are required to work on Veterans Day, compensation will be determined based on the following:

  • Exempt (salaried) unclassified fiscal year faculty, academic staff, and professional staff required to work will receive equivalent time off (i.e., accruing holiday compensation at the rate of one hour for every hour worked).
  • Non-exempt (hourly) and exempt (salaried) University Support Staff, and non-exempt (hourly) unclassified professional staff will receive holiday compensation at the rate of 1.5 hours for each hour worked.

Additional Information

Shared service representatives will contact supervisors of exempt employees to collect holiday hours worked and will submit to the HR HR/Pay team for adjusting balances.

The holiday credit should not be deleted unless the employee is not eligible for the holiday. Holiday credit may need to be added for eligible employees if hired after the process loaded the timesheet (~ a month in advance). For those in non-traditional work schedules, the holiday credit may be moved to a scheduled workday in the same work week.
