    Holidays?

    Inspired by a conversation with my wife...

    What holidays does your employer observe and/or pay you overtime for working on?

    Her civilian employer does not observe Veteran's Day!

    We get 13 holidays.

    You get holiday hours you can use through the year. If you work one of those holidays, it's time and a half.

    For example, say you work Thanksgiving and the day after. You get time and a half for each day, and are allowed to take 16 hours off somewhere else.

    1. New Year's Day
    2. Marthin Luther King, Jr. Day
    3. Easter
    4. Memorial Day
    5. Independance Day
    6. Labor Day
    7. Veteran's Day
    8. President's Day
    9. Thanksgiving
    10. Christmas

    I think I am missing one, but cannot remember which one. I believe the contract calls for eleven paid holidays. Plus, officers generally get two hours (unofficial) off for dinner if they work on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Thats what we get if memory serves me right PapaBear, plus two days of personal holiday.

    I think the eleventh day you are missing could be the day after thanksgiving, which is what we get.

    1. New Years Day
    2. Martin Luther King Day (Recently Replaced Easter for us)
    3. Good Friday
    4. Memorial Day
    5. Independence Day
    6. Labor Day
    7. Thanksgiving Day
    8. Friday Following Thanksgiving Day
    9. Christmas Eve
    10. Christmas Day
    11. Floating Holiday (Determined by Employer)
    12. Floating Holiday (Determined by Employer)

    I'm civilian too, and we don't observe Veterans day either, i think we should though.

    We went to a rotating 12hr schedule a couple years ago. Folks that work in the office, and still work a traditional 8hr schedule still observe that schedule, but we do not.

    12hr people went to PTO hours, now they put all those hours in a bank and we get 8 holidays now at 12hrs. So it just depends on how our work schedule falls to which holidays we get off.

    We get time and a half for Christmas. I think the only holiday I haven't yet worked since I was 18 would be Easter (luck of the draw, really). I'm about tired of this not having holidays off!

    We get:

    New Years Day
    MLK Day
    President's Day
    Good Friday
    Memorial Day
    Fourth of July
    Labor Day
    Columbus Day
    Thanksgiving (2 days as determined by the Mayor)
    Christmas (2 days as determined by the Mayor)
    Each individual employee shall be given his/her birthday off as a paid holiday.

    We get 13 holidays. Holidays are double pay if you work them. You still get 8 hours of holiday pay, even if you are off. So if it is your regular day off, you still get the holiday pay. Pretty nice. I usually try and worked holidays as OT if I am scheduled to be off. Its double time and half then.

    I work a 4 days on 4 days off 12 hour shift. We only get holidays we put in for leave on or fall on our already scheduled off days.

    *Technically* we are supposed to get one day off a month extra (if we're over minimum manning one person gets sent home) plus one day for your birthday for a total of 13 "holidays" of sorts for the year. But, I can't remember the last time someone got an extra day off.

    We just got two extra holidays so we now get seven holidays at 1 1/2 time if working. Now everyone else (except patrol, corrections, and dispatch) seem to always get holidays, for christ sake they had all saints day off but we in patrol get nothing if we are off that day.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    As an employee of the Federal Government I generally get all holidays off that the bank is closed.

    New Years Day
    President's Day
    MLK Day
    Memorial Day
    Independence Day
    Labor Day
    Columbus Day
    Veterans Day
    Thanksgiving Day
    Christmas Day

    Easter is on a Sunday and since I don't work Sundays I am off. If the holiday falls on a weekend I get the Friday before or the Monday after. Holiday pay is paid at time and a half if we work.

    We have 12 holidays a year, we get paid for them in 1 check in September. But what they do is they pick 5 holidays a year that get put into our vacation time and the check is for the remaining 7 holidays at straight time. This is equal to a 2 week paycheck. We only actually get the holiday off if it is a scheduled day off.

    We get the usual holidays paid at 1.7 if we work. If we don't work, we get paid for 8 hours and that 8 hours counts towards our OT.

    So if I'm working my 48 hour week, and the holiday is the day I'm off, my work week just turned into a 56 hour week!

    Thanksgiving we get the day of and the day after. Christmas we get the day before and the day of.

    We also have 3 floating holidays that we can use like vacation, on top of my 200 hours of vacation I get next year!
