This is something I wondered about, too. I havent gotten time and a half for any holiday so I assumed we just didnt get it. Im not sure if it is because I havent worked here for long enough yet or what, though. Hopefully someone has an answer for us.

It would depend on your area, I guess. In the Cincinnati area we get time and a half for all hours worked, plus between 4 and 8 hrs straight time holiday pay whether you work it or not.

It really depends on your division and what contract you are under. I emphasized you because even people working at the same store will be under different contracts. For example, at my store, everyone gets some type of holiday pay in addition to their regular earnings after one year of service. Full timers get 8 hours. Part timers get 4 or 6 hours depending on number of hours worked. That's where the similarities end.

Group 1: The really old timers with over 30 years of service get paid time and a half if they work on the holiday. They also get paid time and a half if they work on any Sunday. Also, if they're non-holiday hours or non-Sunday hours are more than 32 during a holiday week, they get time and half those hours over 32. Basically, Sundays and holidays don't count as part of the work week.

Group 2: People hired after September ?, 1987 but before September ?, 2012 don't get time and half if they work on Sundays or holidays but they do get paid time and a half if they work over 32 hours during a holiday week. Their holiday pay counts as part of their work hours for the week. So 32 hours scheduled plus 8 hours holiday pay equals 40 hours. If you work more than 32 hours, your total hours goes over 40 and yo get overtime.

Group 3: People hired after September ?, 2012 still get holiday pay but those hours aren't counted as part of their work week. So in order for them to get overtime, they have actually work over 40 hours. Of course they and everyone still get paid overtime if they work more than 8 hours on a given day.

This I understand, but now I've been hearing how if you work on a holiday and if you end up with more than 40hrs for the week then you don't get your holiday pay. Know anything about this?

You need to work at least one year in order to get holiday pay.

During the week of Christmas, you need to work 32 hours. If you work over 32 hours than you get overtime. Idk why that is for Christmas. I guess because the store is closed?
