2019 Lab Holiday Schedule


* Employees may use either vacation or leave without pay for these dates. Up to two days' advance use of vacation credit accruals for the months of December may be used to facilitate the implementation of Christmas/New Year's holiday closures. This applies only to employees who have not had sufficient time to accrue adequate vacation balances [see Vacation Leave policy]

** Eligible employees have the option to take one of these days as a holiday. Those employees taking Cesar Chavez or Veterans Day as a Floating holiday must use a third vacation day during the Administrative day after Christmas. See the Implementation Guidance for information on eligibility and time entry procedures.

The Laboratory holiday policy is contained in the Requirements and Policy Manual (RPM), Holidays.
