Holidays

Scheduled Holidays

For Administrator and Professional, Office and Clerical (Local 3882), Laboratory and Technical (Local 3882), and Service Staff (Local 1, Local 810, and Non-Union) employees, there are usually 14 scheduled holidays in each academic year. Each fall, the Human Resources Division provides a schedule of holidays to HR Officers, who post and distribute copies in their units. (Click here for the Office Holiday Calendar.)

A part-time employee is entitled to holidays that fall on days he or she is normally scheduled to work.

If a scheduled holiday falls during an employee’s vacation period, the employee is paid for the holiday and not for a vacation day (i.e. the day off is not charged against the employee’s vacation entitlement).

No pay is given for holidays which occur during an unpaid leave of absence. If a holiday falls on the first working day after the scheduled expiration date of the employee’s leave, the employee is not paid for that holiday.  An employee receiving disability or worker’s compensation benefits is not eligible for holiday pay.

For more information on holiday policies for Office and Clerical (Local 3882) and Laboratory and Technical (Local 3882) employees, including payment for staff members who are required to work on scheduled holidays, see the Collective Bargaining Agreement with Local 3882.

For Service Staff (Local 1, Local 810) employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, please refer to the appropriate contract for all information about holidays. For Non-Union Service Staff not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, please contact NYU PeopleLink.

Religious Holidays

An Administrator and Professional, Office and Clerical (Local 3882), and Laboratory and Technical (Local 3882) employee may take off time for religious holidays not included in the University schedule with the permission of the person to whom he or she reports. Such time off must either be covered by a personal holiday or a vacation day if he or she is entitled to one at the time, or taken without pay.

For Office and Clerical (Local 3882) and Laboratory and Technical (Local 3882) staff, if additional work is available (and the supervisor approves), the employee may also make up the time.

For Service Staff (Local 1, Local 810) employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, please refer to the appropriate contract for all information about religious holidays. For Non-Union Service Staff not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, please contact the NYU PeopleLink.
