    Confused...

    Let me rephrase...

    We have a monthly salary and any additional time (Overtime/holidays) we fill out a time sheet bi-weekly.

    The hours I gave above were all STRAIGHT hours; the way we do it now is:

    If your sheduled off on a holiday we put 8 hrs x 1.0 = 8 hrs pay
    If you work the holiday we put 8 hrs. x 1.0 and 12 hrs x .5 = 14 hrs pay

    So, those of us that work the 12 hrs on a holiday are only getting 6 hours of straight pay extra. Seem right?

    I'm thinking we should get 12 hrs x 1.5 at least, for working the holiday.

    I agree, we're lucky to get 10 paid holidays...

    Thanks again for any help.

      The way I'm reading that, it looks like you're putting down your regular 12 hrs. at half pay. Why?

        There is an idiot who works at my place.

        This idiot works 60+ hours a week, Sundays, Saturdays, holidays, etc.

        Gets no pay for all the overtime.

        I'd fire the idiot but the idiot is me.

          This is why I'm writing this thread...

          "The way I'm reading that, it looks like you're putting down your regular 12 hrs. at half pay. Why?"

          That's what were told to put down

              And the answer is, you will have to work this out internally. Legally, they don't have to pay you anything for not working on a holiday or "holiday pay" if you work on a holiday.

                I hear ya Patty, saw that on the initial posting, but..

                They DO pay EVERY employee for each of the 10 holidays (for which 99% of them are off on the holidays) and what I read in our holiday pay policy is, that we SHOULD be putting in 12 hrs x 1.5 to equal 18 hrsextra pay

                *CORPORATE HOLIDAY PAY*
                Employees who work on a holiday will receive one and one half times their regular pay in addition to their regular pay for all hours worked during their normal schedule. Employees will be paid at two and one half times for all hours worked beyond their normal work schedule.


                My supervisor seems unsure of the wording of this policy as well. I do have a copy of our whole pay policy, if needed.

                It just seems odd that when we work a holiday we're told to put in for 12 hrs X .5 plus an additional 8 hrs x 1 for a total of 14 hours extra pay.

                Are there any other 12 hour rotating shift workers on here that may be able to shed some light on how they input time for scheduled holiday pay?

                Thanks in advance,

                  It doesn't matter a whit what other employees get.

                  This is strictly an internal matter.
                  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.

                    OK...maybe what I'm asking for is...

                    Some help clarifying my company's policy on holiday pay.

                    I believe we are filling out our time cards incorrectly.

                      That's what I was getting at.

                          OK, one last time. We don't know why your company is telling you to do what they are. This is NOT a matter of law. It is a matter of company policy. If you want more information about a company policy, you're going to have to ask the company. NONE of us can answer this question.

                            It's that this is not a legal matter; it's an internal company matter. What part of that are you not understanding?

                              pattymd @ cbg

                              Thanks for your replies:

                              My company HAS a policy, I'm just not certain that were are following that policy, there seems to be some gray area as far as interpretation of our policy; like I've stated, my supervision is also unsure of the "policy"

                              I wanted to ask this forum before addressing our HR personell.

                              I thought this forum was "Labor law talk" to ask others, who are more intelligent than I, for some insight/information.

                              As in my situation, to understand/interpret my company's policy and to see if we are complying with it or not.

                              Thanks again.

                                It doesn't matter how we interpret your company's policy. Since holiday pay is not required by law, thus there being no laws to comply with, your employer is free to interpret or even ignore their own policy as they wish. The correct interpretation is the one your employer chooses to use.
