3. 3. Definitions In this survey, a floating holiday is defined as a holiday that provides an employee paid time off to observe a holiday not observed by the organization. For example, employees receive a paid day off (in addition to paid holidays or vacation days) to take when they wish, such as on their birthday or on another holiday that is not a scheduled holiday for the organization.
