  • Holiday Hours

    I have a question for Arizona Labor Law, if it matters on state, for Holiday hours. Christmas and New Years falls on a Sunday this year 2005. The following Monday is considered the legal working day for most companies to be closed, right? Is there a law that requires companies to pay double time if you have to work on that Monday? Is there a law in place if someone works on Christmas day or New Years day to pay double time?

    Thanks,

    The company can be closed any day it chooses, and does not have to pay holiday pay at all (at least, to nonexempt employees), let alone double time in Arizona or any other state. There is no such law.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      No law in any state requires an employer to close for Christmas at all. While many companies have chosen to offer Monday the 26th as a holiday, no law in any state requires them to do so.

      Is there a law that requires companies to pay double time if you have to work on that Monday?

      No. No state requires the payment of double time on any holiday. One state (Massachusetts) requires time and a half for SOME employees on SOME holidays. One other state (Rhode Island) requires that STATE employees who work on certain holidays be paid at time and a half. All other states leave it entirely up to the employer whether to offer a premium for working on the holiday or not.

      Is there a law in place if someone works on Christmas day or New Years day to pay double time?

      No, there is not. No law in any state requires any employer to pay any employee double time for working any holiday.
      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.
