*Weekends are part of the Christmas & New Year and Easter breaks for non-exempt employees who regularly work on weekends.

Employees must be at work, on paid vacation, paid personal time, or paid sick time the day before and the day after the holiday in order to be eligible for holiday pay.

When a holiday falls within an employee's vacation, the day will be paid as a holiday and not counted against your vacation.

If you are a non-exempt full-time employee or part-time employee who regularly works 20 hours per week and 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.

In order to receive holiday pay you must be regularly scheduled to work on the day of the holiday.

Holidays are subject to change.
