Winter Weather

Worried about the weather?

With winter weather upon us, this is a reminder that now is a good time for departments to discuss procedures for communication regarding weather-related absences.  During times when weather conditions deteriorate, each person in the university community must exercise personal judgment about their ability to get to or from campus.

Interruptions to your work because of weather are no different from other events that cause us to leave work early or arrive late.  The first thing employees should do is contact their supervisor directly and explain the situation.

Hourly employees can use vacation or comp time to make up for the hours missed due to bad weather.  Exempt employees would be expected to fulfill their regular job responsibilities.

For concerns or questions, employees should contact the Director of Human Resources, Renee Hiller at 487-2280 or at rlhiller@mtu.edu.
