Holiday Schedule FAQ's

Q1: Who determines how many holidays state agency and university employees will receive?
A1: The state legislature sets the total number of holidays that can be observed each fiscal year by all state agencies.  Institutions of higher education may establish their own holiday schedules, as long as the total number of holidays observed does not exceed the number of holidays observed by an employee of a state agency.

 

Q2: Why does the number of holidays we receive vary each year?
A2: The legislature allows us to observe only those holidays that fall on a weekday. If a holiday falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, we are not able to observe that holiday by taking it at a different time. For example, we cannot observe a holiday on the previous Friday or the following Monday.

 

Q3: Why don't state agencies and institutions of higher education observe the same holidays?
A3: The state legislature gives institutions of higher education the flexibility to establish their own holiday schedules.
