Holiday Schedules for State Employees

Note: These schedules shall be used by all state agencies operating under the policies, rules and regulations of the Office of State Human Resources. Institutions of higher education and agencies requiring a twenty-four hour operation may adopt varying holiday schedules in keeping with operational needs provided the employees are given the same number of holidays as approved by the State Human Resources Commission. Such special holiday schedules must be filed with the Office of State Human Resources.

It is recognized that some agencies may need to adopt an additional holiday schedule applicable to their employees working on assigned shifts to maintain a twenty-four hour operation; this schedule would designate as holidays the specific dates of the legal observances rather than substitute weekdays when the observance occurs on Saturday or Sunday. This would be in keeping with the purpose of the holiday premium pay policy. Click for the State's Holiday Policy.
