Springfield, OR asked in Employment Law for Oregon

Q: See below

I have a question - I put in a proper 2-week notice on May 17th with May 31st being my last day of the 2 week notice.  I understand I forfeited all but 16 hours of my vacation according to HR and company’s policy around 2 week notices.  The 31st is a holiday and our HR Generalist moved my Exit Interview to tomorrow the 28th of May from the 31st.  Am I still eligible to receive the holiday pay as I have no control over holidays.

A: Holiday pay is not a legally controlled item, it is only a company policy, so you would have to look at your company's policies. That said, while you may not have control over holidays, you did have control as to when to put in your notice, and Memorial Day has been scheduled on that date for literally decades.
