In order to receive holiday pay you must report for work on your scheduled day before and after the holiday.

When a holiday falls within an employee's vacation, the day will be re-scheduled or added to the vacation period.

If you are scheduled to work on a holiday you will usually be given an alternate day off with straight time pay within the same bi-weekly pay period. If your supervisor cannot schedule you off within the same pay period, you may elect to receive the holiday as straight time pay.
