Merry Christmas on this three-day weekend! And, very likely, enjoy your extra holiday pay. The same for New Year’s day, which like Christmas this year, falls on a Friday. And if, by chance, the Grinch runs your workplace, take this piece from Business News Daily to make him or her feel like Scrooge.
Overall, Bloomberg BNA’s annual holiday practices survey shows companies typically giving holiday pay and, leading into this weekend, sponsoring holiday parties. Employers are handling this year’s Christmas and New Year’s breaks just about the same workplace as the last time, in 2009–2010, the holidays fell on Fridays.
So, enjoy them with your families and friends!
