Winter break for UNCW employees officially begins on Monday, Dec. 23. The designated holidays are Dec. 23, 24, 25, 26 and Jan. 1.
Dec. 27, 30 and 31 are required vacation days for employees earning leave. Since the State of North Carolina requires that negative leave balances be deducted at the end of a calendar year, employees with negative vacation and sick leave balances as of December 31, 2013 will have the hours deducted from pay in the February 2014 paycheck. However, with supervisory approval employees may incur negative compensatory time for the required vacation days and make up the time at a later date. Unit leave keepers should be able to respond to employee questions.
