December 22, 28, and 29 of 2023 have been designated as “gift days,” meaning that employees are excused from work with pay without having to charge a benefit. If an employee is required to work on one or more of those days, they must receive an alternate gift day that must be used by June 30, 2024.

A gift day is a paid day (use of benefit time is not required) provided to leave benefit eligible employees. Essential employees who must work on a designated gift day may use their gift day at a later time in the current fiscal year, with supervisor approval. Unused gift days are not paid out at the time of termination and do not roll over into the next fiscal year.

For other questions related to gift days, contact Labor and Employee Relations at 333-3105. Employees have two Floating Holidays that can be used any time from July 1, 2023, until June 30, 2024. However, the scheduling of these two Floating Holidays are subject to unit approval.
