Holidays July 3, 2023


Employees have the right to take time off from work on holidays, which are typically compensated days off. In the US, there are ten government occasions noticed yearly, which are New Year’s Day, Martin Luther Lord Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Dedication Day, Autonomy Day, Workday, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. However, employers may observe different holidays for different industries, locations, and other reasons.
Beyond federal holidays, employers may choose to provide their employees with additional holidays, such as religious holidays or other days of significance. Floating holidays, which permit employees to take time off at their own discretion with management approval, are also offered by some employers.
By law, employers must compensate their workers for any observed holidays. The policy of the company, industry norms, and the employee’s obligation to work on the holiday all play a role in determining the pay rate. Some employers may provide additional benefits like bonuses or additional time off, as well as premium pay for working holidays.
