(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) Veterans’ Day Holiday
Veterans’ Day falls on Sunday, November 11, 2018, and is therefore observed as a State Holiday on Monday, November 12, 2018, in accordance with NYS Attendance rules. Classes are scheduled on Monday, November 12, 2018 and the College will be open. Department heads and supervisors should communicate to their classified and professional employees whether they will be required to work on that day.
For employees who are required to work, the following State attendance rules will apply:
Classified employees who work on November 12 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 contact 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 12 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 of the holiday.
Employees who are not required and choose not to work on November 12 do not need to charge leave accruals for that day.
