Holidays

DHRM Policy 4.25 – Holidays http://www.dhrm.virginia.gov/hrpolicy/web/pol4_25.pdf
UMW Holiday Calendar Revised 2013-2014 UMW Holiday Calendar

Employees are notified annually of the days on which state/federal holidays will be observed at the University of Mary Washington.  Any questions regarding this schedule should be addressed to the Office of Human Resources.

Full-time employees receive 8 hours of pay for all designated state holidays.  Quasi full-time and part-time employees receive holiday pay proportionate to hours worked for all designated state holidays.

Additional days may be designated.

When a holiday falls on Saturday, it will be observed on the preceding Friday; when a holiday falls on Sunday, it will be observed on the next Monday. If a holiday falls on an employee’s scheduled day off, other than a weekend, the employee will be granted up to 8 hours of compensatory leave. If an employee is required to work on a holiday, the employee may be eligible for pay plus compensatory leave.

Full-time employees who work alternate work schedules (e.g., 9, 10, or 12 hour shifts) will receive compensation for the holiday equal to 8 hours. Employees must use accrued leave or flex their schedules (with supervisory approval) for the remainder of the work cycle to cover the entire shift.

If an employee who is eligible to accrue leave works an alternate work schedule, he/she should talk with the supervisor or the Office of Human Resources about holiday leave. Holiday leave is prorated for classified employees who work less than a 40-hour schedule.  Because wage or supplemental part-time employees are paid only for days worked, they are not eligible to receive holiday pay.
