HOW ARE PAID HOLIDAYS CALCULATED?
In California, hours worked on holidays, Saturdays, and Sundays are treated like hours worked on any other day of the week.
California law does not require that an employer provide its employees with paid holidays, that it close its business on any holiday, or that employees be given the day off for any particular holiday.
If an employer closes its business on holidays and gives its employees time off from work with pay, such policy or practice adopted by the employer are pursuant to the terms of a collective bargaining agreement, or pursuant to the terms of an employment agreement between the employer and employee.
Also, there is nothing in the law that requires an employer to pay an employee a special premium for work performed on a holiday, Saturday, or Sunday, other than the overtime premium required for work performed in excess of eight hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek.
