Personnel Required to Work on a Scheduled Holiday

If an employee must work on a day the University observes as a holiday, the supervisor may schedule another day off with pay. It would not need to fall within the same workweek. If another day off is not feasible, the department may add a day’s pay at straight time to the employees check to compensate for the holiday missed.

Holiday During Leave of Absence or Vacation

An employee will not be paid for a holiday, which occurs during leave without pay (e.g. holiday occurs on Monday, employee returns from leave on Tuesday – employee will not be paid for the Monday holiday). An employee will be paid for a holiday if an unpaid leave begins on the working day immediately following the holiday (e.g. holiday occurs on Monday, employee leave begins on Tuesday – employee will be paid for the Monday holiday).

A paid holiday will not be charged as part of vacation time when it falls within an employee’s vacation period.
