Anybody Else Stuck Working Today?

Due to X-Mas landing on a Sunday, the boss insisted we stay open today. Well surprise surprise it's dead today. I think the Government should make an exception that if Christmas lands on a Sunday make Monday X-mas day .

Yep. And it's dead.

Only good thing is that you can actually get work done without the silly customers bothering you.

We actually called our boss and he said we can take off early, otherwise we would have been billing lunch to the company so it's a cost savings.

The Federal government does for the most part


** December 25, 2016 (the legal public holiday for Christmas Day), falls on a Sunday. For most Federal employees, Monday, December 26, will be treated as a holiday for pay and leave purposes. (See section 3(a) of Executive order 11582, February 11, 1971.)

Well, in the other thread, you say you got an X-mas bonus. I'm a contract worker, so I get A. No X-mas bonus and B. No holiday pay (and my workplace is closed today)

Ditto. Although my workplace is open, so I can actually earn some money today. Oh the joys of being expendable ...

I would be rather surprised if most, if not all, state governments do pretty much the same thing.

I know the Virginia DMVs were closed both Friday and today, but I don't know if that applies to all of Virginia government offices or not.

Re: Anybody Else Stuck Working Today?

I started working (from home) Friday then realized everyone else was off. Of course I hadn't worked ahead so I still needed to put in a few hours. Off today, though.

No, but only because Monday is my weekend. The Sunday-to-Wednesday shift is at work today.

According to Virginia dhrm, the 26th is a state holiday.

Not yesterday, but back for a public meeting today then off till next Tuesday. I was off for the same period last year, but ended up working due to the weather. This year it looks clear, but I'm still on call.
