2020 summer hours program begins

Summer hours

DePaul’s Summer Hours Program began Friday, June 19, and will continue through Friday, Sept. 4, for eligible employees. 

Summer Hours may be implemented on an individual basis in one of two ways—so plan ahead with your manager to determine which Summer Hours method you will follow:

  • Method I: Early Friday departure - each Friday during the summer, eligible employees will be allowed to end their workday at 3 p.m. and receive pay for the period of time not worked. 

  • Method II: Summer floating holidays - employees whose work requirements do not permit a regular 3 p.m. Friday departure may instead be granted three summer floating holidays. These holidays must be taken in whole day increments. No other variation is allowed. 
Either Method I or Method II must be selected by each manager for each eligible employee in their area prior to the Summer Hours start date each year. Each employee may only be under one method for the duration of the summer; switching between methods is not permitted.

And don’t forget to record your Summer Hours in your timesheet! Regardless of the Summer Hours method you are using—Early Friday Departures or Three Additional Summer Floating Holidays—your time away from work due to this program must be recorded on your timesheet in Campus Connect.
