Delaware celebrates eleven holidays that are also recognized by the federal government. On these days, state offices are closed and state employees are given paid days off for all holidays. However, there are some unique features about Delaware’s holiday law.
State employees are given paid days off on any federally recognized holiday. The same is true for some city and county employees as well. Private employers are not required to give employees paid time off for holidays.
In Sussex County, Delaware, located in the southern section of the state, Return Day is celebrated in the county seat of Georgetown on the Thursday after Election Day.
