Paid service days for UITS staff
Indiana University offers a paid leave day once a year to participate in an IU-sponsored volunteer event.
The UITS Cares team is coordinating options for employees to sign up for scheduled volunteer opportunities. Employees will receive information from the UITS Cares team with details on the opportunities available at each campus and how they can register. Once registered, the request will route to their supervisors for approval. The UITS Cares team will then work with managers to schedule the service days.
Managers are encouraged to stress to their workers that this is an employee benefit and must be tracked. Hourly workers will need to track time, and appointed staff will record a full day off using the VOL code. Employees are welcome to volunteer as much as they want during these opportunities, but only one day will count as a paid volunteer day.
