    1.) No, this is not discrimination. The idea behind holiday pay (which is not required by law) is to make the employee whole. You don't normally work that day so there is nothing to make whole. Besides which, it is extremely unlikely that what you signed is considered a binding contract; rather, an acknowledgement that you have been informed of the policies. Finally, the employer has the right to change or amend policies at any time.

    2.) As stated above, it is highly unlikely that what you signed constitutes a binding contract. If it is not, then no, they do not "owe" you 40 hours a week.

    3.) First off, you mean bereavement, not grievance. Without seeing their policy it's impossible to say if you are "owed" any pay for the day. The law does NOT require it. Grandparents are often NOT included in paid bereavement policies.

    Nothing you have posted violates any laws. You are free to show the agreements to an attorney and see if s/he thinks they would stand up as binding contracts, but I wouldn't be betting the rent on it.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
