Re: UPCOMING HOLIDAY, INDEPENDENCE DAY; JULY 4TH 2014
July 4th, 2014, Independence day, is an observed holiday for employees of Yakama Forest Products. Independence day is a paid holiday for employees per the Yakama Forest Products Employee Handbook, as long as every employee does the following:
"EMPLOYEES QUALIFY FOR PAID HOLIDAYS WHEN THEY WORK THE FULL SHIFT BEFORE AND AFTER THE HOLIDAY OR HAVE AN EXCUSED ABSENCE WITH SUPERVISOR'S APPROVAL"
Make sure you work the full shift before the holiday and the first shift immediately after the holiday in order to get paid your Independence Day Holiday pay. Also should you have a tardy or an unapproved early out the shift before or the shift after the holiday you will not receive your holiday pay.
As usual there are departments with employee's that will be working the holiday. (For example The Dry Kilns, Security, and Maintenance.)
Any questions regarding the upcoming holiday please ask your supervisor or myself.
Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend!
