Do we have to pay an employee holiday pay for a day they are not otherwise normally scheduled to work?
– Manager, Operations
Simply stated….no. You are well within bounds to establish a policy that states that holidays that fall on days that are not part of those work days your employee is normally scheduled to work are not considered holidays for those affected. So, for example, your policy could be that an employee that works Tuesday – Friday will not receive holiday pay for holidays that fall on Mondays.
