Like other departments across the campus, Human Resources will also be working remotely November 30-January 18, 2021. If you  have questions and need to contact us please email us at  We will respond to your email and/or schedule a call via TEAMS to provide additional services and support.

Please be reminded that SAU will observe the Thanksgiving Holiday beginning on Wednesday, November 25th at 12:00 noon through Friday, November 27th.  We will begin remote work effective Monday, November 30th – Friday, December 18th.  Employees will only be allowed on campus during this time if their Department/Division has submitted your name on an approved list managed by the SAU Police Department/Security Gate.

Just as a reminder, the Furlough Day for the month of December will be observed by affected employees on Monday, December 21st.  Furloughed employees will need 5 vacation days to cover the Christmas break.  

Employees with a salary of $40,000 or less will not be furloughed but will be required to utilize a vacation day for Monday, December 21st; therefore, you will need 6 vacation days to cover the Christmas break. 

For employees who have a concern regarding the Christmas break and whether or not you will have enough days to cover that time, HR will have vacation balances available by December 15th.  If employees don’t have enough days to cover the break, HR is allowing you to borrow vacation time from 2021. If you prefer to take those days without pay, please inform HR ASAP.
