In the State of California, can an employer require permanent, fulltime, hourly works to work on federal holidays (e.g. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years). And, if so, must any premium over regularly hourly pay be paid for hours worked on those holidays?

carol333... California does not require that an employer provide employees with paid holidays, that it close business on any holiday or that employees be given the day off for any particular holiday. There is also no law that requires an employer pay a special premium for work performed on a holiday (or weekend, for that matter) other than overtime pay for 40 hour workweek. Holidays, as defined by California Government Code Section 19853 are: January 1 (New Year?s Day) Third Monday in January (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) February 12 (Abraham Lincoln's Birthday) Third Monday in February (President's Day) March 31 (Cesar Chavez Day) Last Monday in May (Memorial Day) July 4 (Independence Day) First Monday in September (Labor Day) Second Monday in October (Columbus Day/Indigenous People?s Day) November 11 (Veteran's Day) Thanksgiving Day Day after Thanksgiving December 25 (Christmas) Thanks for your question and if you need any additional clarification, please let me know.
