We follow the Federal holidays which for 2021 are:

Monday, May 31 Memorial Day
Monday, July 5 Independence Day

Thursday, November 25 Thanksgiving Day
Friday, December 24 Christmas Day
Friday, December 31 New Year's Day
There are 10 federal holidays every year, but in 2021 a federal holiday will be celebrated twice on two separate days. The reason—2021 is a rather unusual year in that many of the annual U.S. federal holiday dates fall on weekends, and thus the actual federal holiday has been shifted.
For example, July 4 falls on a Sunday in 2021 and so the Independence Day federal holiday will be on Monday July 5. In the case of Christmas Day and New Year's Day, because they both fall on a Saturday, the federal holidays are moved back one day to the preceding Friday. That means the Christmas Day federal holiday will in fact be on Christmas Eve and the New Year's Day federal holiday, which should have been on the first day of 2022, has been moved to the last day of 2021. Thus, 2021 will have 11 federal holidays rather than the usual 10.
At the end of every year, JPSYS sponsor a peer nominated bonus. Employees and managers nominate their co-workers to recognize the energy they put into their jobs and the results they achieve for our clients. The top 3 nominees receives a cash bonus in their paychecks.
Those Mysterious Pay Check Stub Leave Totals
The leave listed on your pay stubs show the YEAR TO DATE hours accrued and used for holidays, sick and vacation. The figures shown use your hire anniversary date as the start of the year - not the calendar year. If you are being paid for leave time on this pay check, this is shown under the Earnings Section. The leave year is set up this way as your vacation hours accrual rate will increase after certain anniversary dates. See the JPSYS Employee Manual's Paid Leave section for more information or contact HR.
The JPSYS Who To Contact List
The company contact list can be downloaded from the JPSys_Central Team or the Bamboo HR Files tab in the 'New Employee' sub-folder. It contains both important JPSYS internal and vendor contact info.
