If a holiday falls on Saturday or Sunday, the preceding Friday or following Monday, respectively, is considered the holiday.
State offices also close at noon on December 24. This is an office closure, not a holiday. Noon closure applies on December 24 only, and is not moved to the preceding Friday or following Monday as referenced above for holidays.
Employees who are scheduled to work on holidays are generally provided an alternate day off.
