  • either work their full shift or have enough paid leave (SL, AL, CTO) to cover any amount of time absent on the working day prior to and immediately following Jan. 2, 2020.

 Note: The floating holiday hours will not visible or available in the MyTime leave system until Monday, Dec. 24. Further, employees using terminal leave on Jan. 2, 2020, will not be eligible for the floating holiday hours.

The floating holiday hours may be used any time between Jan. 2, 2020, and June 30, 2020. Any floating holiday hours not used by June 30, 2020, will be forfeited.
