We have received a number of phone calls inquiring about Monday, July 3, 2017 since the July 4 holiday is on Tuesday. ESU will be open for business as usual, as it is the first day of the second block of summer classes. Approved holidays are listed on our holidays page
If you earn vacation leave, and are interested in taking an extended holiday break, please work with your supervisor through your normal leave request process. As a reminder, accrued vacation leave, accrued compensatory time, or an unused Discretionary Day may be used for any approved time off. Keep in mind that sick leave is reserved for time off due to qualifying medical situations.
Have a happy, and safe, Fourth of July.
Foreign National Employment
To assist foreign national employees, and the departments employing them, we have added additional information about Optional Practical Training (OPT), H-1B non-immigrant visas, and permanent residency (green cards) at http://www.emporia.edu/humres/jobs/foreign-national/index. A link to this page has been added to our "Jobs" menu in the navigation banner at the top of this page. Documents that help the employee and department progress through the sponsorship steps can also be found on the documents button in the navigation banner at the top of this page.
It is once again time to start earning HealthQuest Rewards points by logging into the HealthQuest Portal! The state is using a new provider this year, so all employees (and participating spouses) will need to create a new username and password. Your state ID number will be required, and that can be found on your pay stub, or you can contact HR for assistance. After the account is created, you can earn points toward the $480 discount on your 2018 premiums (deadline December 31, 2017), as well as an additional $500 in your HSA (for those on plan C; deadline November 9, 2017). Learn more about HealthQuest here, or check out the HealthQuest FAQ.
