The 4th of July was not always a paid holiday for federal employees. Here is some of the history behind this federal holiday.
Legislation has been introduced in the House to guarantee back pay to federal employees who would be furloughed in the event of a shutdown.
OMB has issued special instructions on pay and leave for agencies and employees who would be impacted by a partial government shutdown.
If a holiday falls on a Monday and that’s my day off, does the holiday move to Tuesday or does my day off move to Tuesday?
