5-11.2 Holidays with Pay
a. Except as listed below, classified employees shall receive full pay for the holidays listed above, provided however, the employee works the remainder of the scheduled work week or is on approved paid leave. Employees on leave without pay, and employees being paid by donated leave, are not eligible for holiday pay.
b. Rather than observing the days listed in Section 5-11.1, sworn members of the Police and Fire Departments and Communications Center personnel, and other civilians in the Police Department shall receive days in addition to their annual vacation, which may be used as holidays with pay. These days are accrued on a quarterly basis, are to be used on a calendar-year basis, and may only be taken after approval of the division/department head.
These employees must work or be on approved paid leave for at least half of the working days of the quarter in order to earn the holiday(s). In order for the department to minimize the impact of scheduled absences, the employee may “borrow” and use up to the number of holidays that he would earn through the calendar year, as long as he maintains a sufficient balance of vacation leave equal to the number of holidays borrowed. The days will be credited and available for use as of January 1 each year.
Holidays are earned as follows:
(1) Sworn members of the Police Department, Communications Center personnel, and sworn members of the Fire Department who work a 40-hour work week shall receive seven days (56 hours), with the employee accruing two holidays in the first, third and fourth quarters of the calendar year, and one holiday in the second quarter.
(2) Fire Department personnel working on the 24-hours-on/48-hours-off shift basis shall receive six and a half days, with the employee accruing one and one half holidays in the first quarter, one in the second quarter, and two in the last two quarters of the calendar year. These days shall be defined as six 24-hour shifts, plus twelve hours (total of 156 hours).
In January following five years of classified employment, and in each subsequent year, personnel shall receive an additional one half day (twelve hour) holiday in the first quarter.
If a firefighter recruit works at least half of the quarter, he will earn and use holidays per the above schedule at the rate of eight hours per day while working a forty-hour work schedule. If he works on-shift at least half of the quarter, he will earn holiday leave at the 24-hour rate as provided above.
(3) Other civilians in the Police Department shall receive ten days (80 hours), with the employee accruing two holidays in the first and second quarters of the calendar year, and three holidays in the third and fourth quarters.
5-11.3 Working on Holidays – Excluding members of the Police and Fire Departments whose schedules require them to work on holidays, classified employees eligible to receive pay for overtime work and required to work during the holidays listed shall be paid (or may earn compensatory leave) at a rate of one and one-half times their regular rate for all hours worked on a holiday, in addition to regular holiday pay, regardless of the number of hours worked that week. If the employee chooses to flex during the work week the time earned while working the holiday, the flex time shall be earned at one and one-half times. This section does not apply to public safety employees who are credited with their holidays by the quarter. See Section 5-1.11 regarding Call to Work While on Leave.May 14, 2021 at 11:58 am #1891
