This applies only to employees who have not had sufficient time to accrue adequate vacation balances [see Vacation Leave policy]

**Eligible employees have the option to take one of these days as a holiday. Those employees taking Cesar Chavez or Veterans Day as a holiday in Calendar Year 2013 must use a third vacation day on Thursday, December 26, 2013.  See the Implementation Guidance for information on eligibility and time entry procedures.

The Laboratory holiday policy is contained in the Requirements and Policy Manual (RPM), Holidays.
