HR Tip- plan ahead! June 30, 2023 is the last day to use your Personal Observance Day for this Fiscal Year

Dear University Staff & 12-month Faculty: if you are eligible for paid leave time and haven’t already used this benefit in fiscal year 2023, please plan ahead to schedule your Personal Observance Day. June 30th is the last day to use it. This additional holiday can be used in observance of Juneteenth or another day of the employee’s choosing.  July 1 begins a new fiscal year and you will have a new Personal Observance Day to use.

To record this time on your MyLeave calendar:

  • use Earnings Code “Personal Observance Day”


Background: In May of 2022, Colorado and the University of Colorado officially recognized Juneteenth as a state holiday. Here is the original email from the CU President.
