News and Announcements
Late last week, Gov. Jim Justice issued executive orders declaring additional half-days on Monday, Dec. 24, and Monday, Dec. 31, as official holidays for State employees. And since WVU already observes these days as holidays, the University has modified its holiday calendar to include an additional 7.5-hour “floating” holiday (pro-rated by FTE) for leave-eligible employees, effective Monday, Dec. 24.
The Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA) is holding annual public hearings during the month of December in multiple locations around the state. These hearings allow the public to learn more about PEIA’s proposed changes for Plan Year 2020 and to voice their concerns and comments. The Morgantown hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, at Erickson Alumni Center. Registration begins at 5 p.m.; you must register to speak. Details, including the hearing agenda, proposed changes and schedule may be found on the PEIA website.
