PURPOSE / SCOPE:
ICOM offers paid holiday time for its part- and full-time employees.
POLICY AND PROCEDURE:
All full- and part-time employees are eligible for paid holidays from their date of hire. Employees on an unpaid leave of absence on the day before or the day after a holiday are not eligible for holiday pay.
ICOM recognizes the following holidays:
- New Year’s Day (January 1)
- Martin Luther King Day (third Monday in January)
- Memorial Day (last Monday in May)
- Independence Day (July 4)
- Labor Day (first Monday in September)
- Thanksgiving Days (Thursday and Friday)
- Christmas Days (December 24 and 25)
When a scheduled holiday occurs on a Saturday, it will be observed on the preceding Friday, if it falls on a Sunday, it will be recognized the following Monday.
In addition to the above days, ICOM also gives part- and full-time employees paid time (Winter Break) scheduled from December 26 through December 31. Christmas holidays that fall on a Sunday, do not extend the time away for Winter Break.
Non-Exempt (hourly) Employees and Holiday Hours
Scheduled Hours: Non-exempt eligible employees will be paid holiday hours prorated based upon their scheduled FTE. The number of holiday hours should not cause an employee to exceed their regular work week hours, unless such hours are due to coverage requirements. Employees should work with their supervisors to adjust schedules accordingly.
Overtime: Holiday hours are not considered hours worked. Therefore, a non-exempt (hourly) employee may work over 40 hours in a work week in which a holiday falls but may not receive an overtime premium.
Hours Worked on a Holiday: Non-exempt employees who are required to work on a recognized ICOM holiday will receive time and a half for hours worked. Hours are coded as “Holiday-Work” in the timesheet (Paylocity), which denotes 1.5x pay.
