Holidays: Replacement (In-Lieu-of) Holidays

Replacement holidays are usually referred to as “in-lieu-of” holidays. If you work on a flexible or compressed work schedule and your holiday falls on a non-workday, then you get a replacement holiday on your scheduled workday immediately before the holiday. But, if the actual holiday falls on a Sunday non-workday, then you get your replacement holiday on your next scheduled workday.

If you’re a part-time employee, you are not entitled to a replacement holiday when a holiday falls on one of your non-workdays.
