Compressed workweeks: How to handle holidays

in Human Resources

Q. A handful of our employees work four 10-hour days and get Fridays off. The rest work a regular week (five eight-hour days). If a holiday falls on a Friday, should the employees who work the 10-hour days also get Thursday off since they are always off on Fridays? — C.J., Nevada

A. There is no requirement that employees who work four days per week must be given another day as a holiday. Under federal law, employers are not required to provide holidays at all. And—unless there is a collective bargaining agreement or an employment agreement that applies—you don’t have to pay employees for holidays that they’re not otherwise scheduled to work.
