How To Account for Holiday Observance or Holiday Pay

If you are a full-time employee, and you did not work on a holiday, nothing needs to be done. Holidays are automatically recorded on your timesheet.

If you are a part-time employee and the holiday falls on a day that you are regularly required to work, or actually do work, you can observe the holiday up to a maximum of a full day. To add this, click on the "Select Leave" drop down and select "State Holiday" from the list of choices. Click on the "Add Leave Category" button and enter the number of hours you are normally scheduled to work.

If you are a full-time employee with an alternate work schedule (AWS) or you work on a holiday or you have a waiver for holiday pay, this may affect how you account for your time. Please see the job aid below for full details and a decision tree to properly account for your time.

If you need additional information or have a special situation, check out the helpful guide below.
