If a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday will be observed as a holiday.  If a holiday falls on Saturday, the preceding Friday will be observed as a holiday.  Any day designated by the Governor will be a holiday.

Regular full-time employees are paid for these holidays.  If required to work on a holiday, they will be compensated at the rate specified in the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

Employees, whose days off are other than Saturday and Sunday, are allowed time off for holidays in a way equitable to conditions affecting employees who are working Monday through Friday.  If employees are required to conduct job-related activities on a holiday, they shall be entitled to an additional day off.

Regular part-time employees do not receive paid holidays; if required to work on a holiday, they receive their regular pay.

Advance of Holiday Comp-time Accrual for Firefighters Working 24-Hour Shifts

Effective December 19, 2004, firefighters working 24-hour shifts shall receive an advance of  67.2 hours of holiday comp-time accrual at the end of the first pay period in July and again at the end of the first pay period in January of each year.

The basis for the advance of holiday comp-time accrual for firefighters working 24-hour shifts shall be consistent with the holiday benefit provided to 40 hour-per-week employees, and is determined by comparing the total number of hours scheduled in a year for a firefighter to that of a 40 hour per week employee.  Firefighters are scheduled to work 2920 hours (365 days/24 day work periods = 15.208 work periods per year x 192 hrs per work period) while regular employees are scheduled for 2080 hours (40 hrs x 52 weeks).  By dividing 2080 into 2920, a conversion ratio of 1.4 is derived.  So, for every 8 hours of paid holiday available to 40 hour-per-week employees, a firefighter should accrue 8 hrs x 1.4, or 11.2 hours. Forty (40) hour-per-week employees receive 12 paid holidays, or 96 hours per year.  Firefighters working 24-hour shifts receive 96 hours x 1.4, or 134.4 hours per year, which divided over 2 accruals per year amounts to 67.2 hours per accrual. Employees hired between accruals will receive a pro-rated holiday comp-time accrual proportional to the amount of time remaining until the next accrual date.

Effective January 2002, unused holiday comp-time balances are forfeited immediately prior to each semi-annual accrual. (See policy 3301)

Effective December 2007, if an employee uses all advanced holiday comp-time and then terminates employment while there are still holidays remaining in that holiday advance period, that employee will be required to pay back to the City the value of the remaining holidays upon termination.

Advance of Holiday Comp-time Accrual for Police Department Shift Employees

Effective July 2001, police department shift employees shall receive an advance of 48 hours of holiday comp-time accrual at the end of the first pay period in July and again at the end of the first pay period in January of each year.  The basis for the advance of holiday comp-time accrual for police shift employees is 12 paid holidays, or 96 hours per year, which divided over 2 accruals per year amounts to 48 hours per accrual.  Employees hired between accruals will be advanced a pro-rated holiday comp-time accrual proportional to the amount of time remaining until the next accrual date. 

Effective January 2002, unused holiday comp-time balances are forfeited immediately prior to each semi-annual accrual. (See policy 3301)

Effective December 2007, if an employee uses all advanced holiday comp-time and then terminates employment while there are still holidays remaining in that holiday advance period, that employee will be required to pay back to the City the value of the remaining holidays upon termination.
