Holiday Pay

We provide our benefit-eligible employees with paid time off to recognize major holidays.

To be eligible for holiday pay you must be in paid status on the last regular day before and the first regular workday following the holiday. You are considered to be in paid status when you receive regular, sick, or vacation pay.

If you are a part-time benefit eligible employee and/or an employee who works in a department with mandatory 24/7 operations, you will receive holiday pay based on the actual number of hours per day that you are regularly scheduled to work. If you are on leave (sick or vacation) you will not be granted additional holiday pay for the holidays that occur during your leave.

If you are a nonexempt employee who works on a holiday you may be paid regular pay in addition to holiday pay or you may be credited with those hours to take time off later in the same work week. You do not receive any additional compensation if you are an exempt employee who works on a holiday.

For more detailed information please see our Employee Holiday Policy.
