Holiday Schedule

All Employees

The State Personnel Board has given academic institutions the authority to substitute days that coincide with the academic schedule for the 10 legal holidays. Further, individual departments whose responsibilities dictate unusual work schedules may establish holiday schedules which deviate from the University's schedule (see HR Manual, p. 3.18-19).

Hourly Employees

Hourly employees are not entitled to payment for holidays unless work is performed on the day of observance.

Religious Occasions

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 December 1, 1972).

Cesar Chavez Day

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 Cesar Chavez day should contact Human Resources or review the material under the Benefits Section of the HR web site.
