Personal Holiday


The personal holiday is a paid day off work that eligible monthly-paid professional staff employees receive each year in addition to the regularly scheduled state holidays.

The terms and conditions under which you receive a personal holiday are specified by the Professional Staff Program.


You receive and are eligible to use your personal holiday after you complete your initial four (4) months of employment. Effective January 1, 2010, professional staff employees with annual appointment periods of less than 12 months became eligible for the personal holiday. Before this date, professional staff employees with appointment periods of less than 12 months did not receive a personal holiday.

Using the Personal Holiday


Follow your department’s procedures for requesting and taking time off from work to request use of your personal holiday.
