Support Staff Policy & Procedure for Observance of Religious Holidays


Applies to: University support staff

It is the policy of the University to permit support staff, where practicable, to observe those holidays set aside by their chosen religious faith.

Support staff should be sensitive to fellow employees who take time off from work to observe these holidays.

It is the responsibility of support staff who wish to use personal or vacation leave time to be absent on those work days to make arrangements in advance with their supervisor.


Employee: Notify supervisor of desire to use vacation or personal leave time for observance of religious holiday(s). 

Supervisor: Approve and record absence in EBS Portal or through unit-level reporting procedures.

Refer questions to: MSU Human Resources (telephone 517-353-4434, e-mail)
