Gift Days

A gift day is a paid day (use of benefit time is not required) provided to leave benefit eligible employees. Essential employees who must work on a designated gift day may use their gift day at a later time in the current fiscal year, with supervisor approval. Unused gift days are not paid out at the time of termination and do not roll over into the next fiscal year.

If you have any questions about the use of holidays or gift days, please contact UIS HR at or (217) 206-6652.
