COMMENTS

1 Lincoln's Birthday and Election Day are "floating holidays" (unless notified differently) for M/C employees, non-teaching professional faculty, and employees represented by CSEA and PS&T.  Employees in the Security  Services and Security Supervisors negotiating units will observe Lincoln's Birthday as a fixed holiday.

2 Classes are in session and offices are staffed by UUP, MC, and essential Classified employees.

3 Non-essential staff may take the day off and charge their time with supervisory approval.

4 Since the holiday falls on a Saturday, a compensatory holiday is earned in accordance with bargaining unit agreements. Employees who are required to work will be entitled to additional compensation based on applicable holiday option. Part-time employees who are eligible to observe holidays and who are regularly scheduled to work Fridays will be credited with holiday leave equivalent to the number of hours in the employee's regular Friday schedule (not to exceed 7.5 or 8 hours).

Notes:

Eligible veterans and former reservists have certain other options for Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran's Day. Employees may inquire in the Payroll Department for more information.
