NEC Observed Holidays
Friday after Thanksgiving
New Year’s Day
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Holidays that fall on the weekend are normally observed on the same day as the federal or state observance. Employees with a workweek different from Monday through Friday observe the same number of holidays, through a schedule determined by departmental need. Staff members with a workweek different from Monday through Friday, who are granted “floating” holidays are not paid for unused floating holidays upon termination of employment. A paid holiday that occurs during an approved vacation period is not counted as vacation.
- Part-Time and Academic Year Employees holiday schedule and pay are prorated, based on the number of hours worked.
- Management and Professional employees who are required to work on a holiday will be provided another day off with pay, to be arranged and approved by the department head.
- Support and Service employees who are required to work on a holiday because of scheduling and departmental needs will receive regular pay plus time and one-half for all hours worked. In the case of holidays that are observed on an alternative day when they fall on a weekend (Independence Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day), Support and Service employees who are required to work on the day that the holiday is observed (but not the actual calendar holiday) will be given another day off with pay at a later date, to be arranged and approved by the department head.
