Holiday pay

If an employee does not work a holiday week. (e.g. 4th of July week)

Is that person still entitled to recieving holiday pay for that day?

Employers are not required to offer time off for holidays or to pay for holidays that are given off or additional pay for work performed on a holiday. The determination of which, if any, holidays will be recognized, any time off benefit, and whether or not any additional pay will be given is left up to the individual employer.

If they do opt to provide holiday pay and/or time off, employers are permitted to establish eligibility requirements, such as working the day before and after the holiday. Many, but not all, employers do have such policies.

In this case, the employee would be entitled to receive holiday pay only if he or she had met all requirements for this pay, as established by the employer.
