Memorial Day is currently a "Monday" holiday by State and Federal law. However, Maine law also provides that the date for observing Memorial Day in Maine will be changed to May 30th if the Federal Government should return the Federal date of observance to May 30th.
An employee who is required to work on any of these days will be granted compensatory time off at the mutual convenience of the employer and employee. If the holiday falls on a normal day off, an additional compensatory day will be granted. Cash payments shall be made only in the instance of departmental policy established in conformance with Chapter 11, §1 of the Civil Service Rules.
To be eligible for holiday pay, employees must be in pay status on the
normal workday immediately preceeding and the normal workday following the day and date on
which the holiday is observed.
