Prior to July 1 of any college year, the governing board of any community college district may designate other days during that year as the holidays to which classified employees are entitled in lieu of the holidays on February 12 known as "Lincoln Day," the third Monday in February known as "Washington Day," the last Monday in May known as "Memorial Day," or November 11 known as "Veterans Day" as specified in Section 88203, if the designated days provide for at least a three-day weekend. Classified employees shall be required to work on the regular holiday for which another day is designated pursuant to this section, and for work of eight hours or less, shall be paid compensation at their regular rate of pay.
If any classified employee would be entitled to the regular paid holiday but would not be in a paid status during any portion of the working day immediately preceding or succeeding the day so designated in lieu of that holiday and therefore would not be entitled to a day in lieu of the holiday, he or she shall be entitled to the regular holiday; however, if the employee is required to work on that holiday, he or she shall be paid compensation at the rate of time and one-half of his or her regular rate of pay in addition to the regular pay received for the holiday.
This section shall not be construed to authorize the maintenance of colleges on holidays other than as provided in Article 3 (commencing with Section 79020) of Chapter 8 of Part 48.
This section shall apply to districts that have adopted the merit system in the same manner and effect as if it were a part of Article 3 (commencing with Section 88060).
