Holidays for Staff Employees

Staff employees (75% FTE or greater) receive the following nine paid holidays a year. Each holiday is considered to be eight hours for full-time Staff and is prorated by FTE for part-time Staff (50-74%).

If a holiday falls on a Saturday, it is observed on the Friday immediately preceding the holiday. If a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the Monday immediately following the holiday.

See the Holidays policy for further details.
