We recommend that you bookmark the relevant page and visit it in the event of extreme weather to learn if classes or exams are cancelled or non-essential services are curtailed on your campus.
Preparing faculty and staff in your department/unit for extreme weather:
We recommend you determine if you have “essential” positions within your department/unit that would be required to attend at the campus during extreme weather, and ensure that the staff in those roles are aware of their responsibilities. For questions, or help in determining essential service levels, contact your HR Advisor.
You are requested to review your department/unit’s snow procedures, make any necessary updates, and share with all faculty and staff in your department/unit.
Please ensure that those in your department/unit know what to do if extreme weather prevents them from getting to campus, and campus remains fully operational. For questions regarding policy in this scenario, contact your HR Advisor.
Calculating the pay for Statutory Holidays (also referred to as Paid Holidays in some employment groups) can be straight-forward for most UBC employees; however, there may be circumstances where more detailed calculations apply, particularly when an employee works part time.
We have put together a guide for administrators to assist you in calculating statutory holiday pay for UBC’s different employment groups. Please download the guide at our Calculating Statutory Holiday Paypage.
If you have any questions, please contact your HR Associate.
