Attendance at University Sponsored Events

Attendance at official university-wide functions or at Departmental or Divisional functions is considered "working hours” and employees will not be required to charge the absence to annual leave. Attendance at these functions must be approved in advance with the supervisor, and such attendance should not interfere with normal operations of the area in which the employee works. Attendance at recreational events sponsored by the University, when scheduled during work hours, is not considered "time worked" and annual leave must be taken to attend the events.
