Holiday Pay Calculation

Holiday pay = Hourly rate X holiday hours X holiday rate*
The holiday rate is either 1.0 for paid holidays or1.5 if the holiday is worked.

Effective with HRIS-L issued 1/27/06 Holiday credit counts toward FLSA hours worked:

With the conversion from civil service to university support staff, we are able to consider policy revisions to better meet the needs of our campus. In the past, holiday credit (the paid time for a holiday when it is not worked) did not count toward the calculation of the overtime eligibility for non-exempt staff. Effective with this memorandum, holiday credit will count toward the calculation of overtime eligibility for all of the University’s non-exempt staff, whether university support staff or unclassified professional staff. No other forms of paid leave will count toward the calculation of overtime eligibility, e.g. neither sick nor vacation leave.

HDC (nonexempt) and HDE (exempt) are the straight time credit codes to reflect paid holidays for the Univerity of Kansas employees.
HDP (exempt and nonexempt) is the code to pay an employee who works on a holiday.
HCP is the code to give holiday compensation time to an employee who works on a holiday.

KAR 1-5-24 was amended to allow an official state holiday to be counted as time worked for nonexempt employees in certain circumstances (i.e.emergency work outside the normal work schedule, etc.)
