Part-time employees who obtained earned time eligibility under former policy HR05 prior to Dec. 31, 2014, are only eligible for holiday pay on days normally scheduled to work which fall on established University holidays.

Employees represented by a union will locate their holiday provisions in their respective Collective Bargaining Agreements.
