Company Policy Series – Paid Holidays Policy Sample
The purpose of the Paid Holidays Policy is to inform employees of the Company’s observed paid holidays and eligibility for receiving holiday pay.
The following is what a Paid Holidays Policy could look like:
“Full-time employees working 40 hours per week are eligible for eight hours of pay for each observed paid holiday. Regular part-time employees working a minimum of 20 hours per week, and employees working less than 40 hours per week, will have their holidays prorated.”
In addition, some other guidelines in the Policy should include:
- Designating which holidays a company will observe each year
- Employees who choose or are scheduled to work on an observed holiday
- Overtime compensation
Not all companies require the same polices and it is recommended that polices be tailored to a company’s specific needs. If you would like a complete version of this policy, please contact us.
