*In lieu of Christmas Day, which falls on a Saturday this year, each UPG team member will receive a Floating Holiday based on the number of hours you work per week. Example – Full-time employees will receive an additional 8 hours of PTO to use on another holiday or for other personal reasons. These floating hours must be used between January 10, 2021 and December 25, 2021 and cannot be rolled over if they are not used. All PTO hours must be approved by your supervisor and entered into Workday.

Note: If you are working in a patient care area or other area critical to business operations, you may be required to work on a holiday. In this instance, your manager will discuss holiday staffing requirements with you.
