FY 2014 Birthday Leave Policy



In 2012, Tarleton's Executive Cabinet made the decision to extend the benefit of a paid day of leave for each employee during the month of their birthday.  From my perspective, this day is well deserved and is greatly appreciated by those who take advantage of it.

Last April, the campus community provided Kyle McGregor valuable feedback concerning Tarleton's FY2014 holiday schedule, which he carried to his fellow Executive Cabinet members.  A byproduct of that investigation were conversations around the use of employees' annual birthday leave for dates outside of their birthday month.  Because of your suggestions, I have authorized Angie Brown to amend Tarleton policy and allow the annual birthday leave to be used at any time during the year, beginning September 1, 2013.

Please feel free to review the amended SAP detailing Tarleton's Birthday Leave.

Thank you for the many efforts you employ for our students and their success, and best wishes for an enjoyable fall semester.
