We are excited to announce that Employee’s Birthday has been added to our paid holidays!

The updated policy will be effective 6/6/22. However, qualifying Employees with birthdays from 1/1/22 to 6/5/22 will be grandfathered in. As with all paid holidays, you must be full time, limited full time or part time (maintaining a minimum of 20 hours per week) and be employed 90 days to qualify for the Employee Birthday Holiday.

We also reduced the number of call-in days before and after a holiday to be disqualified for a paid holiday.

Please see the attached updated Paid Holiday policy for more details. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your Director or HR at (931)752-7699.

Thank you for everything that you do!

Paid Holidays

The following are provided to all eligible full time, limited full time and part time employees (maintaining 20 hours/week) after the 90-day probation period:

  • Employee’s Birthday
  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Holidays that fall on Saturday will be observed on Friday and on Sunday, will be observed on Monday.  Holidays will be paid the pay period of the holiday, whether you work or are off.

This Agency provides care for patients every day of the year.  This includes holidays.

In order to be eligible for holiday pay, an employee must work his/her full schedule.  An employee who calls in the day of a holiday or 3 days before or 3 days after the holiday, will not be eligible for holiday pay.  All schedules are subject to change during holidays in order to accommodate patient needs.  If an employee’s routine patient cancels services for the holiday, that employee is subject to being assigned to another patient.

Holiday pay will not be paid if:

  • The employee fails to maintain full time, limited full time, or part time hours (depending on employee status) for the 2 weeks preceding the holiday.
  • The employee is on lay-off status.
  • The employee is on leave of absence when the holiday occurs. (i.e. FMLA or Workers’ Comp)
  • The employee is requested to work during a paid holiday and the employee refuses to do so.

Employees who work during a paid holiday will receive holiday pay plus regular pay.

Note:  An employer can legally require an employee to work a holiday.

Employee’s Birthday

We want to help celebrate you and your special day! Birthday Holiday’s must be used in the same pay period as the employee’s birthday.  Employees will complete a Time Off Request noting Birthday in the reason code if requesting a scheduled day off. Request must be submitted by the 20th of the prior month.

Employee Birthday Holiday will follow the same qualifications and guidance as other paid holidays.

As with all paid holiday’s, the employee must record Birthday Holiday on their time sheet to receive the Birthday Holiday pay.
