*When New Year’s Day, Christmas Day or Independence Day falls on a Saturday, the university observes Friday as the holiday. When they fall on a Sunday, Monday will be the holiday.
Employees in a with benefits status who are leaving employment with the university must work at least one day after a holiday to receive holiday pay. For example: an employee who resigns during December will not be paid for the Christmas Recess holiday period unless he or she actively works at least one day in January.
