Holiday Pay


Is an employer legally obliged to offer all of its workers holiday payment?
—HR Manager, Healthcare Industry

Actually there are few if any laws in place that mandate a company must pay for holidays off, let alone provide holidays as days off. That being said it is important to check the state law in your state. Issues arise however when you setup different policies and practices within the same company, paying some but not all for their holidays. You therefore need to be consistent in your practices.
