Full Answer

UPS works many days a year, and although there are many federally recognized holidays, UPS only works on days that are not federally observed. Federally observed holidays are holidays when businesses have to give employees time off or pay them holiday pay if they work. Federally observed holidays for UPS include. If the holiday falls on a Sunday, these holidays are generally recognized on Monday:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

Federally recognized holidays means that the company does not have to close for the day, but they have the option to, based on the company owner's choices. Employees are still paid holiday pay on these days. These days include everything from Martin Luther King's Birthday on January 19 to Father's Day in June to Kwanzaa on December 26. If these holidays are representative of an employees religion, employee's are encouraged to take the day off to enjoy the holiday with family.
