What is Hol Prem?

#1
I hope this is the right forum for this.

Anyways, was looking at my pay statement on eHR and noticed something called "Hol Prem"

What is that? I think this is the first time I recall ever seeing it. o_O

Just worried... because it's like 13.25/hr or something, and I have 6hrs under it... and I always make sure I don't hit overtime, or that I don't hit compliance... or work six days in a row in a single target-considered week (sun to sat) ...

eta: and just noticed the pay&benefits board. good grief... I'm out of it. u__u;

Okay, that explains it then.

Part of me was thinking, "holiday premium...?" but then my tendency to worry took over. Dx

So glad it's nothing that could get me fired. ^^;

Is black friday considered a holiday?
I believe so, Somebody correct me if im wrong, but last Black Friday a friend of mine at work told me that we were going to be paid extra for working that day.

A lot of major retailers will offer holiday pay for working Black Friday as a way to compensate for working the busiest day of the year and dealing with the crazies that come out.

i think black friday holiday premium hours end around noon-1 if im mistaken, thats what some1 told me last year.

but holidays including memorial day, 4th of july, labor day for dayside tm's u will get hol prem. If you work overnight, then i believe that days where the store closes like easter, thanksgiving, and christmas are hol prem as well.

We were always told we got shift differential for working Black friday and that as long as you clocked in no later than 5am you were paid for the whole shift you worked. And that's the way it's worked out on my checks for that day. And for Thanksgiving, I'm full time, and I didn't get 8 hrs but received whatever my average daily hrs were.

Any shift that is a partial shift differential means that the whole shift is at the higher pay.

A few years ago Target stopped having ad set people come in at 4am because the workers got the shift differential for the whole shift. The "new"
time for coming in is 6am and this time is not considered part of a shift differential. Target saved a lot of money changing the ad set work time.

Some retail stores pay people one dollar extra for working on Sunday....wish we did.
Some retail stores let managers work Monday thru Friday with every weekend off. While having weekends off would be nice, I don't think that this is a fair practice.

That's not the case any longer. It changed earlier this year. Only hours worked during the differential period earn differential, and you have to work (if I recall correctly) at least three hours during that period to qualify. So a 4a-12:30p shift earns 4 hours of differential, a 5a-1:30p earns 3 hours, and a 5:15a-1:45p earns 0.

Of course, that's not applicable to the question that was asked about holiday premium pay, which never worked the same way as differential to begin with. Only hours worked on the holiday earn holiday premium pay. So a 10pm Thanksgiving shift would earn two hours of holiday premium, and shift differential for any part of the shift between 10pm and 8am (I think 11pm stores actually don't start paying differential until 11pm, though, so you might not get it for 10-11 in those stores.).

This stinks ^^......wonder then what time the stores will open on BF?

For our store the earlier opening was ok, but then most of the rest of the day our sales weren't what they were expecting.

Hopefully Target will got back to a more (reasonable?) opening time.....like 6am BF morning.
