School’s Out for Summer

HR brings us important information about Summer Fridays, vacation days, benefits, and more!

No Vacation Carryover
Don’t forget to schedule the rest of your vacation time: June 30 is the end of the vacation accrual year.  Please note that there is no vacation carryover – so if you don’t use it, you will lose it!  Take heart: July 1 begins the new vacation accrual year and Summer Flex Days!

Summer Fridays
As a small token of Pace’s appreciation, we will once again offer flexible summer hours this year. This summer each full-time staff member will have the opportunity to take every other Friday off, for three Fridays or the equivalent, between July 1 and August 12.  Each school/college or division will administer the flexible summer hours program based on the needs of the University. Enjoy!
