UCOP winter break office closures (holidays and curtailment)

Winter break is just around the corner! Here’s what you need to know about office closures.

Oakland, Sacramento, Washington, D.C., and Livermore staff

Our Oakland, Sacramento, Washington, D.C., and Livermore offices will be closed from Monday, Dec. 25, 2023, through Monday, Jan. 1, 2024 for winter break. This includes four paid holidays and two unpaid (curtailment) days:

  • UC holidays (paid): Dec. 25, 26, 29 and Jan. 1
  • Curtailment closure (unpaid): Dec. 27 and 28

Each department head may identify essential services that must be maintained during the break and schedule staff accordingly. All UCOP offices will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024.

Timecoding for winter break and curtailment days

Eligible employees can use vacation, compensatory time or leave without pay to cover the two unpaid curtailment days.  If you haven’t yet accumulated enough vacation leave by December to cover the curtailment days, you can arrange to borrow against future vacation time. Unless you are on an approved block leave of absence, you are not permitted to use sick leave.

UCPath staff

The UCPath Center will continue critical operations in support of UC employees during the winter break closure. UCPath employees will be working normal business operations during this period and should check with their supervisors regarding their work schedules. UCPath offices will be fully closed for paid holidays on Dec. 25, 26, 29 and Jan. 1.
