Could a employee ask floating holidays as consecutive days like July 8″~10?
I wonder if it is common.
Yes, an employee can certainly ask. And it’s not uncommon for a business to approve such a request if it makes business sense. Let’s say they ask a worker to work the 4th of July weekend to manage the increased customer volume (such as in retail or a restaurant). They might then be willing to pay that same worker to take a floating holiday instead.
Ultimately, it’s up to the employer.
Best practice employers provide information like this in their employee handbook and then train employees on what the request process is. Here’s our article on floating holidays for reference.
