Do I Have to Work Holiday Shifts?

Whether you have to work on a holiday depends on who you work for, whether you are covered by a union contract, and company policy regarding holidays.

If you work for the Federal Government, you'll get nine paid holidays each year including New Year's Day, Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day (4th of July), Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Many private employers follow the same holiday schedule and also provide holiday days off or holiday pay for working on a holiday.

In addition, companies are not required to give you holidays off from work. Many employers, especially in retail, hospitality and healthcare, are open on holidays and conducting business as usuals. Workers are expected to work holidays and are typically paid their normal pay rate.
