Policy Statement

The University of the Pacific's paid holidays and seasonal/staff appreciation days for regular full‐time and part‐time benefit eligible staff members vary between campuses. Due to operational needs, some staff members may be required to work on either a paid holiday or a seasonal/staff appreciation day. Eligible part‐time staff members shall be paid for the holiday on a pro‐rated basis.

Non‐exempt staff members shall be paid time and one‐half when required to work on a paid holiday and will receive regular pay when required to work on a Pacific seasonal/staff appreciation day.

Exempt and non‐exempt staff members required to work a paid holiday or seasonal/staff appreciation day have two options with supervisory approval:

  1. Within three (3) months of working the holiday or seasonal/staff appreciation day staff members will receive an additional day off for working the holiday or seasonal day/staff appreciation day; or
  2. Be  paid  for  the  holiday  or  seasonal/staff appreciation day  at  the  appropriate  rate,  in addition to the actual hours worked on the holiday or seasonal/staff appreciation day.

Paid holidays or seasonal/staff appreciation days falling on Saturday or Sunday will be observed on either the Friday before or Monday after the holiday weekend.

To be eligible for holiday and seasonal/staff appreciation pay, regular staff members must be in a paid or active status on the workday before and the workday after the holiday(s) and/or seasonal/staff appreciation day(s).  An unpaid leave will not be considered a paid or active status.
