Holiday Pay and Substitution

Observed and Season Days can be confusing.

If you work any portion of a house officer contractual holiday, you are entitled to holiday pay.  A day is defined as beginning at 12:00 am. and ending at 11:59 pm.

You cannot be forced to take a vacation day that is a designated University Observed Holiday.  There is always a certain amount of confusion when it comes to the University's Observed Holidays and the Season Days.  This time off is at the discretion of the Employer and based on staffing needs.

Remember, you can substitute 2 days that you work for holiday pay.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Robin in the HOA Office, X69205.
