Administrative leave for employees for upcoming fall events
It’s time to enjoy New Mexico’s unique celebrations! President Becky Rowley is authorizing four hours of administrative leave for full-time ‘regular status’ employees (prorated for those employees working part-time/regular status). Use this time to participate in local community events, such as:
• Aug. 30: Zozobra
• Aug. 31-Sept. 8: Fiesta de Santa Fe
• Sept. 5-15: New Mexico State Fair
• Oct. 5-13: Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
Please consult with your supervisor to coordinate your time off. A few rules: you must take the hours between Friday, August 30 and Sunday, October 13, 2019. Administrative leave cannot be accumulated for use outside this time period and cannot be considered as work time for purposes of overtime compensation. Supervisors are reminded to schedule this time off in a way that does not negatively impact services. See Policy 4-35 Leave.
