University offices are closed on these days. If you are a University Staff employee and occupy a position that requires you to work on a holiday, you earn time and a half for all hours worked. You can also defer the holiday to use at a later time.
If a legal holiday occurs on an employee's regularly scheduled day off (i.e., Saturday or Sunday), floating legal holiday time is granted (see exception below).
Exception: If the legal holidays of January 1, July 4, or December 25 occur on a Sunday, University offices will be closed on the following day (Monday) in observance of the legal holiday.
Allocation of Floating Legal Holiday
Floating legal holiday is allocated to the employee during the pay period in which the legal holiday occurs and will appear on the next leave or earnings statement.
Use of Floating Legal Holiday
Floating legal holiday may be used any time during the year it is earned. University staff employees must use the January 1 floating legal holiday hours during the calendar year it is earned. Unclassified employees must use the January 1 legal holiday hours during the fiscal year it is earned. If used before the legal holiday occurs, the balance will appear as a negative number on your earnings statement. Use of a floating holiday should be reported as “Legal Holiday” on your timesheet. Please click on the following link to view instructions on how to enter your floating holiday on your timesheet.
There are no provisions to allow employees to carryover floating legal holiday into the next fiscal year (Unclassified) or calendar year (University Staff).
