Chief Justice Directive 01-01, Leave Request--Cesar Chavez Day Holiday

Chief Justice Directive 01-01
Supreme Court of Colorado
Office of the Chief Justice
Leave Request—Cesar Chavez Day Holiday

Senate Bill 01-151, enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Colorado, revises Article 11 of Title 24, CRS, and specifies that heads of state agencies may allow employees to have a day off with pay on Cesar Chavez Day, March 31, in lieu of any other legal holiday. Because the revised statute specifically prohibits granting an additional paid holiday to state employees, state offices, including the courts, will be open for business as usual on March 31.

Therefore, effective January 1, 2001, until further order, the practice of allowing paid time off in lieu of another state holiday, in observance of Cesar Chavez Day, is at the discretion of the administrative authority for each judicial district/location. Such authorities are encouraged to grant employee requests when consistent with business needs.

Done this 10th day of August, 2001.

By the Court:

Mary J. Mullarkey, Chief Judge
