The holiday schedule is subject to change.

Holidays for Institutions Of Higher Learning

Institutions of higher learning are not obligated to follow the holiday schedule prescribed by the above or those proclaimed by the Governor. Instead, each institution is allowed by La. R.S. 1:55(F) to designate its own holiday schedule that will apply to its employees: 

Each institution of higher education in the state, through a representative appointed by it, shall designate a maximum of fourteen legal holidays per calendar year to be observed by all of its employees. 

Working on Holidays

All employees will observe all holidays, provided provisions are made for efficient campus administration and maintenance. If employees are to work on a holiday, all department heads must get prior approval from your campus Chancellor and Human Resources Director.

If non-exempt classified employees work on the holiday, the non-exempt classified employees will be compensated with overtime unless otherwise announced.
