  • Limited Term Employees (LTE) are not eligible for holiday pay.
  • If a holiday falls on a Sunday, state offices are closed the following Monday.
  • If a holiday falls on Saturday (which is the normal day off for most employees), annual basis unclassified academic staff and classified employees are granted this day as a floating holiday to be used at a different date (with supervisor approval). Additionally, if a holiday falls on an employee's scheduled day off, or if the employee is scheduled to work the holiday, the holiday may be banked as a floating holiday.
  • For unclassified employees legal holidays must be used within the fiscal year they are earned or they will be lost.
  • For classified employees, legal holidays must be used within the calendar year they are earned or they will be lost.
