1. Number of Holidays
The college will grant full-time regular employees whose positions are not included within the bargaining unit no less than fourteen (14) paid holidays per year.
2. Holiday Work Schedule
An employee will not normally be expected to work on holidays. A full-time regular employee shall receive holiday time at his/her regular straight time rate to the extent that he/she would have been regularly scheduled to work had the holiday not occurred, provided that the employee works the scheduled shift immediately preceding and immediately following the holiday, provided however that any full-time regular employee who retires during a holiday period with a full-benefit KPERS retirement and at least 15 years of full-time JCCC service shall receive his/her straight time rate up to their termination [or retirement] date provided they work or have paid time up to the beginning of the holiday period. Other approved paid leaves occurring immediately before or after the holiday shall be considered as time worked for the purpose of interpreting this policy.
a. A full-time regular hourly employee may be required to work on a holiday.
In those cases when a full-time regular hourly employee is required to work on a holiday, such work must be approved and authorized by the employee's immediate supervisor prior to the holiday. The college, at its discretion, may either designate an alternate day as a paid holiday or pay the employee at his/her regular rate of pay plus the regular overtime rate for any holiday time worked consistent with the college’s overtime policies instead of granting time off at straight-time pay. If the college designates an alternate day as a paid holiday, such day shall be at the college's choosing and normally will be scheduled within three (3) months from the date of the holiday.
b. A full-time regular salaried employee may be required to work on a holiday.
In those cases when a full-time regular salaried employee is required to work on a holiday, such work must be approved and authorized by the appropriate executive vice president, vice president or chief information officer prior to the holiday. The college shall designate an alternate day of its choosing as a paid holiday, and such day normally will be scheduled within three (3) months from the date of the holiday. A full-time regular salaried employee shall not be entitled to an alternate holiday if he/she works on a holiday without appropriate prior approval.
3. Floating Holidays
The college may permit an employee to schedule one or more of these holidays as a floating holiday. Floating holidays will be non-cumulative, and separating employees shall not be reimbursed for floating holidays not taken. The employee must schedule any floating holidays with their appropriate supervisor prior to being taken.
4. Holiday Calendar
The college shall make available to each employee a calendar of fixed and designated holidays for the fiscal year, July 1 through June 30, no later than the preceding May 1.
Holidays for eligible full-time members of the bargaining unit are detailed in the Master Agreement between The Johnson County Community College Board of Trustees and The Johnson County Community College Faculty Association found here Master Agreement (PDF).
