The employee's Birthday Holiday may be taken on either the employee's birthday (if a regular work day) or another work day, mutually agreed upon by the supervisor and the staff member, which falls within 365 days following the employee's birthday.  

Some staff request time off on other work days to observe either religious days or other days of special significance. Employees requesting such time off may be reminded that they can elect to use their Birthday Holiday to provide time off with pay on a day of special significance, subject to the concurrence of their supervisor.
