Policy

Adelphi University may designate certain days each year as paid holidays during which time the University will generally be closed. At the end of each academic year or shortly after the beginning of the new academic year, the Office of Human Resources will issue a schedule of paid holidays which will be observed in the next academic year. Union represented employees are covered by the applicable provisions of their collective bargaining agreement.

All full-time and part-time non-union employees working 25 hours or more per week on a regular basis shall be entitled to holiday pay. Union represented employees should consult the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement for a list of paid holidays.

In order to be paid for the holiday, a part-time employee’s regular work schedule must include the holiday as a work day and such pay will be based upon the number of hours they would have worked on the scheduled holiday.

The Presidents’ Day holiday must be used within an academic year and may not be carried over into the following academic year. Employees must request Presidents’ Day in advance and receive prior approval from their supervisors.

If an employee is required to work on a University holiday, an additional day will be granted which must be taken during the same academic year and may not be carried over to the next academic year.

Non-union employees may not receive pay in lieu of taking holiday, vacation, sick, or personal time.

Temporary employees and hourly employees are not eligible for holiday pay for observed holidays.

At no time will any holiday be considered compensable time at the termination of employment.
