(a) 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.

(b) Classes are scheduled on Veteran's Day. Department heads and supervisors should communicate to their classified and professional employees whether they will be required to work on that day. Department heads and supervisors are encouraged to make every effort to consider requests to have the holiday off from employees who are Veterans. For employees who are required to work, the following state attendance rules will apply:
Classified employees who work on November 11 will be compensated according to their holiday waiver status. Those who have not elected to waive additional money for holiday work will receive holiday pay per their bargaining unit agreements. Employees who waived additional money for holiday work will receive compensatory time off instead of additional holiday pay. Classified employees who wish to inquire about their current holiday waiver status may call the Payroll Office at ext. 4124.
UUP-represented and M/C employees who are eligible to observe holidays and are required to work on November 11 will be granted a compensatory day off. The compensatory day off should be scheduled at a time agreeable to the employee and his or her supervisor within one year before the holiday recurs.
Employees who are not required to work on November 11 do not need to charge leave accruals for that day.
(c) In 2020, Independence Day holiday falls on Saturday, July 4, 2020. Under the state’s attendance rules, all eligible classified and unclassified employees will receive equivalent compensatory time off for the holiday, which is noted on the Time and Attendance records. The college has not specified a particular day to be used in lieu of this holiday. Use of the holiday time should be requested in advance and approved by the supervisor. Please note that the holiday time cannot be used before July 4, 2020, and must be used before the holiday recurs.
