DWE will grant holiday time off to all employees on the holidays listed below:

  • New Year's Day (January 1)
  • Memorial Day (last Monday in May)
  • Independence Day (July 4)
  • Labor Day (first Monday in September)
  • Thanksgiving (fourth Thursday in November
  • Christmas (December 25) 

DWE will grant paid holiday time off to all eligible employees immediately upon assignment to an eligible employment classification. Holiday pay will be calculated based on the employee's straight-time pay rate (as of the date of the holiday) times eight hours. Eligible employee classification(s):

  • Regular full-time employees
  • Temporary employees

To be eligible for holiday pay, employees must work the last scheduled day immediately preceding and the first scheduled day immediately following the holiday. 

If a recognized holiday falls during an eligible employee's paid absence (such as vacation), holiday pay will be provided instead of the paid time off benefit that would otherwise have applied.
