2014 Holiday Schedule

July 21, 2013 | In Benefits & Work/Life

The 2014 holiday schedule is now available. In 2014 University employees will receive 12 paid holidays.

The State Personnel Act provides all State employees a holiday schedule that cannot exceed 11 paid holidays per year, except in those years in which Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday — when the schedule allows 12 paid holidays. For 2014, Christmas Day falls on a Thursday; therefore, we have three paid holidays at Christmas and 12 for the year.

UNC System institutions are also allowed to adjust the dates of the annual holidays to accommodate the academic schedule. Traditionally, UNC-Chapel Hill has moved the State’s Veterans Day holiday into the winter break period. For 2014, the University will observe Wednesday, Dec. 31, as a holiday in lieu of Veterans Day.

Some departments have essential work that must be done on designated holidays. SPA employees who work on holidays are paid holiday premium pay, in addition to hour for hour compensatory time up to eight hours.
