Coverage for some areas of the University may be required on holidays.  The University reserves the right to schedule staff and administrators as needed to work on holidays.  Department Directors will determine and make arrangements to schedule essential personnel to work on holidays. All Department Directors should provide Public Safety and University Facilities will a schedule of employees who are required to work during Employee Appreciation Holidays.

Employees in the "part-time with partial benefits" employment category who are regularly scheduled to work on Employee Appreciation Holidays are eligible for those paid holidays. 

Pay for Employees Who Work a Holiday

  • Benefit eligible, non-exempt staff who are required to work a holiday are paid at 2.5 times their hourly rate for hours worked.
  • Non-exempt employees in non-benefit eligible positions who are required to work on a holiday are paid time-and-one-half pay for hours worked. 
  • Benefit eligible, exempt staff who are required to work on a holiday may take another day off during that calendar year (or the next year if the holiday falls at the end of the calendar year.)
