In celebration of the 2021 holiday season, Governor Newsom has authorized up to four hours of Informal Time Off (ITO) for all state employees. CalHR has updated the Human Resources Manual to reflect the ITO for 2021. For most employees, the paid ITO will be either the business day before December 25 or January 1. Employees required to work these days should be granted the time off prior to June 30, 2022.
This year both the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holidays fall on Saturdays. As a reminder, when a holiday falls on a Saturday, employees shall receive holiday credit.
ACSS hopes all state employees have a safe and enjoyable holiday season and best wishes for the New Year.
