Edited for update. So far, nobody else is reporting that holiday pay is even a thing. Now, for a little background. I work for a health system with several hospitals. Not so long ago, we operated independently. We are now trying to iron things out so that everything is done across the board. With that being said, we all follow the same procedures to upload payroll but each facility still has a human working independently. The holiday pay is a new thing and I didn’t have any legal documentation on how exactly the holiday is supposed to be paid. Several meetings ensued with corporate to hash it out. I reached out to Reddit to get an understanding of what is typical in healthcare. Obviously, legal and compensation depts have a good idea but, I didn’t know how to get a grasp on it. I felt I needed to be ready to, “fight” for our docs if they weren’t getting the standard.
Anyway, FYI, we spoke with our, “Flagship” (very reputable) hospital as they represent. They didn’t even remember that they were supposed to pay holiday! Docs, make sure you know what your contracts say and watch your paystubs… Nobody on hospitals side, legal or Dr ever questioned the language and there will be back pay due. There is a human calculating your payroll – even if you think you’re salaried autopay.
………………………………… Does your facility start holiday pay at start of shift, say, 7:00pm to 7:00am or start at midnight? Our contracts say, Christmas but aren’t spelled out if it’s the Christmas shift or actual date.
