Oregon recognizes nine legal holidays, all of which are also federally recognized holidays. If the holiday falls on a weekend, it is celebrated on either Friday or Monday depending on which day of the weekend the holiday falls.
In addition to all federally recognized holidays, Oregon also recognizes every Sunday as a holiday. The governor may appoint additional holidays throughout the year as well.
Employees who are veterans may request Veteran’s Day off, but must provide the employer with 21 days’ notice as well as documentation of their veteran status. The employer may deny time off if it will present a hardship to the business and must inform the employee within 14 days of Veteran’s Day if the holiday will be granted as well as if it is paid or unpaid.
All Oregon public employees are provided paid holidays. Private employers are not required to provide paid holidays to employees. Although Oregon law does not require them to do so, many private employers offer paid holidays as a benefit. In addition, some offer higher rates of pay to employees in an effort to encourage them to work on a holiday.
