The vast majority of workers had a nice, long weekend to celebrate the Fourth of July. But how does the rest of your company’s holiday calendar compare to the competition?
Almost all (90% ) companies observe the standard six U.S. holidays, which include New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day — according to BLR’s 2010 Survey of Paid Time of Practices.
In addition, 64% of companies oberserve the Friday after Thanksgiving, 30% observe Washington’s Birthday/President’s Day and 26% observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
And the holidays least-likely to be observed by employers:
- Yom Kippur (1%)
- Rosh Hashanah (1%)
- Election Day (1%), and
- Lincoln’s Birthday (2%).
