Veterans Day Holiday Pay

Tuesday, November 3, 2020

As shared in a recent College Update, Veterans Day will be both a student and employee holiday this year, which means that Valencia College will be closed on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

“While this decision might not work for every division due to previously scheduled classes, activities or critical work,” College President Sandy Shugart explained, “I am committed to everyone having off.”

In light of this, please make note of the following timesheet and leave request processes.

Part-time Employees
Part-time employees should record hours they were originally scheduled to work on Wednesday, November 11, as “Leave with Pay.” For part-time employees who work on that day, hours worked should be recorded as such.

Full-time Employees
Full-time employees who complete a time card should record the hours as “Holiday.”

For full-time employees who complete a timesheet and work that day, please enter hours worked.  Your banked holiday hours will then be added to your record once your timesheet has been completed and approved.

For full-time employees who do not complete a timesheet and work that day, banked holiday will be added to your record with receipt of an email from your supervisor to let us know that you worked that day and have therefore earned banked holiday hours.

A Certificate of Absence (COA) for “banked holiday” is required when a full-time employee uses those banked holiday hours after they have been earned.

Federal Work Study Students
Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions as defined under the Federal Work Study (FWS) guidelines, our FWS employees are not eligible for this paid time off.

For questions regarding the procedure for recording hours for the Veterans Day holiday, or recording hours worked and submitting the banked holiday certificate of absence, please contact Bettie Cooper, director, payroll services, at
