Boldface signifies dates that classes are suspended, and it is a non-working day for employees not performing essential functions.
a) The State has designated Lincoln’s Birthday as a floating holiday for M/C employees and employees represented by CSEA, PEF and UUP. Employees represented by PBANYS and NYSCOPBA will observe Lincoln’s Birthday as a fixed holiday on February 12, 2020.
b) Full-time employees who are entitled to observe holidays, and for whom Saturday, July 4, is a regular day off, will be credited with compensatory time off in lieu of the holiday either as holiday compensatory time (for all units except for Security Services, Security Supervisors and Agency Police Services Units) or as an additional day of vacation (for Security Services, Security Supervisors and Agency Police Services Units).
This calendar will be updated to reflect floating holidays for the fiscal year once they have been designated. This calendar does not modify provisions of negotiated agreements or the Civil Service Commission’s Attendance Rules on the subject of holidays.
