Under the provisions of Chapter 4, Section 7, Clause Eighteen, legal holidays that fall on a Saturday shall be observed on that day. All offices under the jurisdiction of any department of state government shall be open to the public for business on the Friday preceding any Saturday holiday. However, as many employees as possible should be given that Friday off. Employees assigned to work shall be given an additional day off as the law and applicable Collective Bargaining agreements allow. Whenever possible the following Monday should be used as the alternative day off.

 

Chapter 30, Section 24A, provides for the action to be taken in the case of persons employed by the Commonwealth when any legal holiday falls on a Saturday. In Addition, Section 11 of the Red Book and Collective Bargaining Agreements currently in effect cover this subject.

 

A legal holiday shall be observed the day following when said holiday shall occur on Sunday (Chapter 4, Section 7, Clause Eighteen).
