Is it legal to replace a religious holiday with a different day off?


Q: “Our firm has Rosh Hashanah on the firm holiday list. We realized this year that it falls on a Saturday and not Friday. The firm wants to stay open that day and remove the holiday from the list. This year, we gave the employees an unscheduled day off for Juneteenth. Can we take away the Rosh Hashanah day off this year?” – Ruth, New York
