Scheduled Holidays

Scheduled holidays are standard holidays that RFCUNY observes during its fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). There are usually 14 holidays scheduled annually during the fiscal year and only Full-time employees are eligible to be paid for scheduled holidays. Employees who are on leave without pay the day before and the day after a holiday, are not entitled to receive pay for any of those days including the holiday.

Terminated employees are not paid for any holiday that occurs after the last day actually worked.

Unscheduled Holidays

An unscheduled holiday is time that may be charged for the purposes of vacation, personal or family business, religious or other special observance, etc. Full-time employees earn four (4) Unscheduled Holidays throughout the fiscal year (July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1).

Eligibility for unscheduled holidays requires that an employee be employed Full-time on the same RFCUNY account for three (3) consecutive months prior to the first day of the month of the calendar quarter. If an employee is transferred from one RFCUNY account to another without a 30-day break in service, an additional three-month waiting-period is not required. 

Accrual details related to the unscheduled holidays earned and used, and remaining balances are accessible in the Time and Leave system.

Other Considerations

Advanced authorization from an employee’s supervisor is required to use unscheduled holidays.

Unscheduled holidays must be used in full days; no partial day or incremental charges are permitted.

If unscheduled holidays are not taken during the fiscal year in which they were earned, and are not taken before the date of an employee’s termination, they will be forfeited.

There is no payout of unscheduled holidays.
