To receive pay for a holiday, the employee must be in a pay status (at work, vacation, sick leave) the full work day preceding and the full work day following the holiday.

For employees out on non-occupational disability benefits or Worker's Compensation the following applies:

  1. If the employee has chosen to use sick leave (therefore, in a pay status) and has sick leave accrued to cover the day before and day after the holiday, then the employee will receive holiday pay. No sick leave deduction shall be made on the day of the holiday. 
  2. If the employee has run out of sick leave, then no holiday pay will be due the employee. In this case, the employee is no longer in a pay status from the University.
