body
BACKGROUND

A change in compensation practices is requested to allow City temporary employees to receive holiday pay. Currently, temporary employees are allowed to observe City holidays, but they do not get paid for the day.

This change is requested:

? To improve the ability to attract employees to City temporary positions and potentially transition to employees to City full time positions
? To align with the City's value of equity as it will provide equity in pay practices for individuals who may be in the same positions or work closely with permanent City employees who receive pay for holidays

The Department of Human Resources and the City Attorney's Office review and modify Chapter 34 of the Dallas City Code (City of Dallas Personnel Rules) to address outdated and/or obsolete information, changes to federal and state laws, and changes to updated City processes and procedures.

A change in the Personnel Rules is required to allow temporary employees to receive holiday pay on an ongoing basis. Changes should be made to the following sections: 34-9 "Eligibility for Benefits" and 34-25 "Holiday Pay".
