SECTION .1300 ‑ HOLIDAY PREMIUM PAY
25 NCAC 01D .1301 POLICY
(a) State employees subject to the State Human Resources
Act who are required to work on designated holidays shall be given, in addition
to regular salary, premium pay equal to one-half of their regular straight-time
hourly rate for such hours as are worked on these days. If an agency or unit
has regularly established work shifts that change at a time other than midnight,
the time of shift change closest to midnight will set the hour limits of the
day for purpose of computing premium pay. For example, if shifts change at
11:00 p.m., the holiday period will begin at 11:00 p.m. the night before and
end at 11:00 p.m. on the night of the holiday.
(b) The State Human Resources Commission establishes one
holiday schedule for most employees subject to the State Human Resources Act.
Premium pay shall apply on any of the dates designated as holidays.
(c) Institutions of higher education establish their own
holiday schedule to accommodate academic programs; other institutions requiring
a 24-hour operation establish a separate holiday schedule to accommodate
holidays occurring on Saturday or Sunday when employees are required to work.
In such cases, holiday premium pay applies to work performed on those holidays
established by individual institutions.
