HANDBOOK FOR SUPPORT STAFF


SECTION 4: TIME NOT WORKED
4.2 HOLIDAYS

The following days are observed by the College as holidays. Offices are closed on specific dates announced, although some coverage is provided (see next page) on Labor Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Easter Monday and one of the days during the Christmas/New Year break. If your office remains open and you are required to work on any of these days, you will not be paid holiday pay rates. Instead, you will be given one floating holiday in exchange for each day worked. One floating holiday is also available for use on either Martin Luther King, Jr. Day or Easter Monday.

New Year's Day Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Memorial Day Independence Day
Easter Monday Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day Christmas Day
Day after Thanksgiving 3 days during Christmas break period
Good Friday  

You must work the full work day before and the full day after the holiday in order to be paid for the holiday. Exceptions will be made for employees on approved vacation or those producing a doctor's excuse for the time involved.

If you are a part-time employee you will receive pay in an amount equal to the hours you would normally have worked if the day were not a holiday.

If your assignment does not call for you to work during the breaks when students are absent from the campus, you will receive pay for nine holidays (rather than 12) during your annual period of employment.  You may select the dates when you receive holiday pay subject to the approval of the Vice President of Human Resources.  The pay for such a holiday will equal that of your Average Work Day.  Nurses in the Health Center and the secretary in the Counseling Center are examples of such employees.  Part-time Dispatchers who only work weekends will receive pay for six holidays (rather than 12), with pay equal to that of their Average Work Day.   

When you are on leave of absence without pay, you will not be paid for holidays that occur during the leave.
