Deadlines to Use Floating Legal Holidays
December 7, 2022

Saturday, December 24, 2022 (Christmas Eve) and Saturday, December 31, 2022 (New Year's Eve) are floating legal holidays which eligible employees may use in accordance with UW System Administrative Policy 1211 Personal Holiday and Legal Holiday Administration. A floating legal holiday occurs when a legal holiday falls on a Saturday. Eligible employees are granted eight hours of floating legal holiday (prorated, if part-time).

When a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, the legal holiday is observed and the UW System is closed on the Monday following the legal holiday. This means UW System will be closed on Monday, December 26, 2022 and Monday, January 2, 2023.

For more information, including eligibility for legal holidays, review the Legal Holidays web page on UW System Employee Benefits website.
