*The Governor’s Office of Employee Relations has notified all state agencies that floating holidays have been designated in lieu of fixed holidays for Election Day and Lincoln’s Birthday for all employees except those represented by PBANYS. UUP-represented employees observe Election Day on the day after Thanksgiving. Classes are scheduled on both floating holidays, so all other eligible employees who work on those dates will receive credit for a holiday and may arrange with their supervisors to use the credit on a date of their choice before the holiday recurs. Security services unit employees will receive vacation leave on these dates.
**Under the Attendance Rules, when a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the following Monday.
***Under the Attendance Rules, if Veterans' Day falls on a Saturday, the State can designate another day to be observed as the holiday by the State, as an employer, in lieu of such holiday, or allow employees equivalent compensatory time off.
(a) Under the Attendance Rules when a holiday falls on a Sunday it is observed on the following Monday.
(b) The State has designated Lincoln's Birthday as a floating holiday in 2017 for State employees in certain bargaining units.
