Adoption Date: 09/17/90  |  Revision Date: 02/16/98  |  Review Date: 08/26/08 | Revision Date: 12/05/17 | Review Date: 12/04/18

Prairie State College shall provide the following paid holidays as an employment benefit for all full-time employees not otherwise covered by a collective bargaining agreement:

  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Day before Thanksgiving Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Day after Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Eve Day
  • Christmas Day
  • New Year's Eve Day
  • New Year's Day
  • Martin Luther King Day
  • President's Day
  • Spring Break Day
  • Memorial Day

The College is also to be closed the days between December 26 and December 30 with those days, excluding Saturday and Sunday, being treated as paid work days.

A holiday or non-work day occurring while an employee is on approved leave shall not count against his/her leave credits.

Holidays which occur on a Saturday or Sunday are to be observed on the work day immediately preceding or following the holiday, unless the day to be observed would occur on December 26-30, in which case the College is closed and the days are already treated as paid work days. In no case shall the combination of holiday and non-work days exceed seven (7) days, without prior Board approval.

Insofar as this policy is not applicable to those covered by collective bargaining agreements, the College is to implement specific provisions in relation to holidays applicable within said agreements.
