⇓ Procedures ⇓

Holidays Falling on Saturday or Sunday

When a designated holiday falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, the holiday will be observed on either the preceding Friday or the following Monday as determined by the College Administration.

Work Schedules and Rates of Compensation

Full-time employees shall be paid for eight (8) hours at the employee’s regular rate of compensation for a holiday. Adjustments in work schedules may be made for employees who are assigned alternate work schedules.

Employees who are assigned to certain externally funded programs will be provided paid holidays in accordance with guidelines applicable to such programs with appropriate application of this policy and accompanying procedures.

Regular part-time employees who are employed to work twenty (20) hours or more per week shall be paid for a holiday at the employee’s regular rate of compensation for a number of hours determined by a pro-ration of the hours the individual is employed per week to full time (40 hours) of employment. (Example: an employee who works 20 hours per week would be paid 4 hours of holiday pay for each holiday.)

Holiday Pay Qualification

In order to qualify for holiday pay, employees must work all scheduled work hours on the last scheduled workday before the holiday and on the first scheduled workday immediately following the holiday or, in lieu of working all such hours, be approved for paid vacation, sick time, personal time, jury duty, bereavement, or military leave. When taking paid time off in lieu of working, an employee must have accrued time of at least 50% of scheduled work hours.

Employees who are absent on unpaid leave are not eligible for paid holidays during such leave.

Employees who are absent due to an on-the-job injury or illness will receive the appropriate worker compensation payment in effect, if any, in lieu of holiday pay.

Special Circumstances for Paid Holidays

If a holiday occurs on an employee’s scheduled day off, the employee will be given holiday pay in accordance with procedures for Work Schedules and Rates of Compensation (above). In lieu of such holiday pay, a full-time employee may request and, with the supervisor’s approval, be granted another specified work day off with pay within the same pay period as the holiday.

A non-exempt employee who is required to work on a holiday shall be paid holiday pay, and the employee shall be paid additional compensation at the employee’s regular rate of compensation for all hours the employee actually works on the holiday.

An exempt employee who is required to work on a holiday may be granted, with the supervisor’s approval, another specified work day off with pay in lieu of the holiday.
