 Below is the holiday schedule for 2017 based on current contracts in place with each employee bargaining unit. For all employees (except those represented by the Fire, Detentions, Probation Officers and Deputy Sheriff’s Associations), an additional three and one half days of paid holiday is provided in 2016 for the closure to be added to the full day holiday for Christmas and half day for New Year's Eve.  Employees in other bargaining units will continue to work their regular schedule even if the office is closed to the public.

 Christmas Eve (observed on Friday, December 23, 2016 is only a half day holiday, and therefore the County will be open on this date.  Departments may approve leave for use on this day but offices must remain open to the public.  The County offices participating in the closure will then remain closed through Monday, January 2, 2017.  The County will be open on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

Maximum holiday compensation is limited to 8 hours of straight-time pay (4 hours on a designated 1/2-day holiday), depending on the bargaining unit.  For permanent part-time positions, holidays are pro-rated accordingly.

For employees working a nonstandard schedule (e.g. 9/80) who do not work the holiday, a maximum of 8 hours of holiday pay will be earned.  If the schedule requires more than 8 hours to be worked on the holiday, those hours must be made up for by using vacation or other approved leave balances.  Supervisors should check the agreements of any employees working flex or alternate schedules to ensure the holiday work week is handled as negotiated, or call Human Resources for assistance in advance

If you have any questions about this information, please check the applicable MOU or call Human Resources at extension 2510.
