Holidays specified in union contracts are observed according to those contracts, even if different from this calendar. Holidays for the NU-Q campus may differ from these dates.
Eligibility for paid time away from work is determined by the following criteria:
Usually holidays that fall on a Sunday are observed on the following Monday and holidays falling on a Saturday are observed on the previous Friday. Staff members in part-time positions are paid on a prorated basis for scheduled University holidays.
In certain circumstances, staff members may be scheduled to work on a day that the University observes as a holiday. In such cases, non-exempt staff members will receive holiday pay at the regular hourly rate or an alternate workday off (as outlined below) plus one and one-half times their regular hourly rate for the hours actually worked on the holiday.
If a holiday falls on a staff member’s scheduled day off, the staff member will receive an alternate workday off. This alternate day off must be scheduled with supervisor’s approval within 30 days of the holiday. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday when a staff member is not scheduled to work, the staff member may take another day off within 30 days of the University holiday with prior
Scheduling of vacation, personal floating holidays, and alternate holidays is always at the mutual convenience of the staff member and the employing department/unit and requires the prior approval of the supervisor.
