Question of the Week: Can We Require Employees to Work the Day Before or After a Holiday?

This week’s question comes from Kim, a business owner. We have an employee who never shows up for work the Friday before a holiday. Can we require employees to work the day before or after a holiday? Answer: Employers may condition holiday pay on attendance, i.e., employers may require employees to work on the scheduled workday before and after the holiday to receive holiday pay. Some employers have exception policies that allow employees to schedule vacation around a holiday, to take a personal day with advanced notice, or to take a sick day with a note from a doctor. Other employers strictly enforce the policy and do not allow exceptions. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any further questions on holiday pay.
