3 Non-essential staff may take the day off and charge their time with supervisory approval.
4 Under the Attendance Rules, when a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the following Monday.
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.
