Personal Holiday


The personal holiday is a paid leave day an employee can use at a time mutually agreeable to the employee and the supervisor. Monthly-paid classified non-union employees are entitled to one (1) paid personal holiday each calendar year in addition to regularly scheduled state holidays.


Classified non-union employees are eligible to use the personal holiday as long as they are scheduled to be, or have been, continuously employed by the State of Washington for at least four (4) months. The personal holiday may be taken at any time in the calendar year.

Using the Personal Holiday


If you wish to use your personal holiday and meet the eligibility requirements outlined above, you will need to follow your department’s procedures for requesting and taking time off from work.
