Montana state offices are closed on legal holidays, and state government employees are entitled to these as paid days off. If a legal holiday falls on a Sunday (except Sunday which is a legal holiday), it is observed on the following Monday (MCA 1-1-216).
Full-time employees who are scheduled for a day off on a legal holiday are entitled to have the day before the holiday, or any day after the holiday, off with pay. Part-time employees receive pay for the holiday on a prorated basis. The term "employee" does not include nonteaching school district employees (MCA 2-18-603).
