Deadlines to Use Floating Legal Holidays
September 1, 2023

Sunday, December 24, 2023 (Christmas Eve) and Sunday, December 31, 2023 (New Year's Eve) are floating legal holidays which eligible employees must use by the deadline.

A floating legal holiday occurs when a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, and the following Monday is also a legal holiday. The Sunday legal holiday will be available for eligible employees to use as floating legal holiday. Eligible employees are granted eight hours of floating legal holiday (prorated, if part-time).

The UW System will be closed on Monday, December 25, 2023, and Monday, January 1, 2024, to observe these legal holidays.
