Individual departments whose responsibilities dictate unusual work schedules may establish holiday schedules which deviate from the University’s schedule with approval from Human Resources (see pages 2 to 12 and 3 to 19 of the Human Resources Manual).
Only benefit-eligible employees receive payment for holidays unless work is actually performed on the day of observance. State Classified hourly employees are benefits-eligible and earn holiday pay on a prorated basis. Please contact Human Resources if you have questions related to holiday pay.
Time off for employees to participate in religious services (e.g., Good Friday) should be charged to annual leave or time must be made up by rearrangement of the work schedule within the same workweek. Free time off for religious services is not authorized (Governor’s Executive Order dated Dec.1, 1972).
Note: The 2001 State Legislature designated March 31 as Cesar Chavez Day. However, this day was not added as a paid state holiday. Employees and departments interested in additional information on Caesar Chavez Day should contact Human Resources or review the material under the Benefits Section of the HR website.
