a) Full-time employees earn eight hours of paid leave for each legal holiday. Part-time employees earn a prorated amount based on their hours worked during the pay period that includes the legal holiday.
b) Dec. 24 and 31 will be floating legal holiday hours. Offices will be closed Mondays, Dec. 25 and Jan. 1.
c) An employee may use floating legal holiday hours at any time during the “year” in which the legal holiday occurs. However, if an employee uses floating holiday hours, and terminates prior to the legal holiday being earned, those hours need to be paid back.
d) Floating legal holidays must be used by the end of the “year” in which they are granted.
