Christmas 2012 Holiday

By December 9, 2012

Follow me on:

The Federal Government provides employees with nine paid holidays, including Christmas.   This year, the official Christmas Day holiday will be Tuesday, December 25.

Private sector employers may provide holiday pay for Christmas Day, Christmas Eve or the day after Christmas, if the company is closed, but they are not required to pay you extra for time worked on a holiday or to give you the day off from work unless you are covered by an employment contract or bargaining agreement that provides for paid holidays.
