- An employee must be in pay status on the day before and the day after a holiday in order to be eligible for holiday pay. If an employee is off sick the day before and/or the day after a holiday, the supervisor may request a doctor’s certificate in order for the employee to be eligible for holiday pay.
- Persons employed on a twelve-month basis, but for less than a full work week, receive holiday pay in proportion to the amount of time per week they are actually employed. For example, an hourly employee who works half-time will receive one-half the normal full-time holiday pay.
- If an employee works fewer than twelve months per year, they will not be paid for any holidays falling during the period of time that they are not actually working. For example, an employee who regularly works from August 1 through June 1 will not receive pay for the July Fourth holiday.
- Part-time employees whose regular weekly schedule causes them to be off on an official holiday will not be compensated for that holiday.
- Student employees are not eligible for holiday pay.
- Employees who are required to work on an observed College holiday should be given a compensatory day off in lieu of the actual holiday. The compensatory day off should be taken during the same seven-day period as the holiday.
- If the staffing needs of the department do not permit employees to be given a compensatory day off, employees will be paid for holidays in lieu of time off at straight time, as long as actual hours worked during the seven day period do not exceed forty (40) hours.
- In addition, if a holiday falls on an employee’s regularly scheduled day off, they will be compensated for that holiday at straight time. For example, if an employee is scheduled to work on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Friday, their days off are Tuesday and Wednesday. If a holiday falls on a Tuesday (the employee’s day off) they will be compensated straight time for the holiday in addition to hours actually worked for the pay period.
