Employee Guidelinelines

  • Since cook-off team participation requires members to prepare several hours in advance, staff participating on teams do not have to take vacation leave between 10am and 4pm during this University-sponsored event.

  • Participating hourly employees should not punch out at 10am. Instead, their managers or TRAM administrators will adjust their timesheets to show work until 4pm. If the hourly employee is scheduled to work beyond 4pm he/she will need to take vacation leave for the remaining hours. 

  • On April 17th, at least one person must be on duty in each department until 5pm to accept calls, receive visitors, or transact business, as required by state law.

  • In addition, since this is a University function, alcohol may not be consumed before 5pm. If an employee chooses to consume alcohol prior to 5pm they must take accrued paid leave (vacation or compensatory time).

Best of luck to all teams and we hope to see you at this year's Chili Cook-Off!
