Policy Name: Holiday Pay

Non-exempt staff
Effective Date: 08/01/04  

Exempt staff
Revised:     Faculty


When a Loyola University New Orleans recognized holiday falls on a day the employee normally works, the employee in most cases will be given the day off and paid straight time for the number of hours routinely worked if the day had been a regular workday.

Non-exempt employees who are required to work on university recognized holiday will be paid time and one half the employee’s base rate for all holiday hours worked in addition to holiday pay irrespective of whether the employee has worked over 40 hours. Any additional overtime will be paid on actual hours worked in excess of 40 hours excluding paid-time-off benefits such as sick leave, vacation, holiday, etc.


Time sheets should indicate the total scheduled work hours for the week plus the number of overtime hours (OVT) @ 1 ½ for holiday hours worked.
