The "Paid Holiday" policy I recommend is as follows:
Our dental practice provides paid time off on certain holidays to eligible employees. After 90 days of full time employment staff members who are designated as full time employees become eligible for this benefit. Paid holidays are as follows:
• New Year's Day
• Memorial Day
• July 4th
• Labor Day
• Thanksgiving Day
• Christmas Day
You must also work the days you normally work that come before and after a holiday. For example, if you normally work Monday-Thursday and the holiday falls on a Monday you must work the Thursday before as well as the Tuesday after the holiday. Also the holiday must fall on a day you normally would work.
Additional free days may be scheduled at the discretion of the doctor.
As with all HR policies always check with your lawyer or HR pro to ensure your policy is compliant with state and federal law.
