Holiday & Winter Recess Pay

In order to be eligible to receive their regular rate of pay during a holiday, a staff member must meet all of the following criteria:

  1. the staff member must be classified as regular full-time (working at least 37.5 hours per week) OR regular part-time with benefits (i.e., working at least 18.75 hours per week); and
  2. the staff member must be in a paid status on the day before and after the holiday(s) or Winter Recess (i.e., not be on an unpaid leave of absence)

Rate of Pay—Employees Not Scheduled to Work
Holiday or Winter Recess pay is paid at regular hourly wage for non-exempt employees based on the number of hours of schedule on that day and at regular pay for exempt employees.

Rate of Pay—Employees Scheduled to Work
A non-exempt employee classified as either regular full-time or regular part-time with benefits who is required to work on a standard University Holiday or Winter Recess, will be paid their regular
rate of pay plus a premium of one and one-half times (1 ½ X) their regular rate for hours worked on the standard University Holiday or Winter Recess.

In addition, designated non-exempt, benefits eligible staff assigned to the School of Medicine as well as Tulane Medical Group will be paid their regular rate of pay plus a premium of one time (1X) their regular rate for hours worked on the standard University Holiday or Winter Recess.

Holiday or Winter Recess pay is not used to calculate overtime pay.

If a staff member that is classified as an exempt employee is required to work on any of the standard holidays or Winter Recess, the exempt employee may reschedule the number of days worked with the approval of their supervisor. The exempt employee will receive pay only at their regular rate for work performed on the standard holidays or Winter Recess.
