December 29, 2006

UNMC offices will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 2, in observance of a national day of mourning for former President Gerald R. Ford. Tuesday will be considered a day of (paid) administrative leave for all leave-eligible employees.

Gov. Dave Heineman announced Thursday that all Nebraska state government agencies will close on Tuesday, in conjunction with President Bush's federal government closing order in observance of a national day of mourning for former President Ford.

Certain UNMC units may need to remain open and operational on Jan. 2. Employees who are required to work on Jan. 2 will be paid for the time worked and also granted an additional day off. Questions may be referred to the UNMC payroll office at 402-559-7460.
