Your Guide to Employee Holiday Leave

American Flag in the wind

We have written about time off and holiday leave a lot on this blog. With the 4th of July upon us, we thought it would be beneficial to create a holiday guide just for you. When holidays come around, employers may wonder how to handle various situations that may come up between their company and their employees. Are you following the law? Are you doing what other businesses are doing? Since the Fair Labor standards Act doesn’t require an employer to pay for any vacation or holidays, you may be left wondering not just what to do, but what you should do.

Employees and employers typically establish holiday benefits in an agreement. This is usually in the form of an employee handbook. This means that employers have flexibility to design a PTO policy that works best for the company, but it also leaves many questions unanswered. We hope you find the articles below helpful and informative.
