UAB employees will receive an additional personal holiday this year following the recognition of Juneteenth as a federal holiday, and they also will be able to keep and roll over any unused personal holidays under an extension approved by UAB and UAB Medicine.

Personal holidays are those provided to employees of UAB, UAB Hospital, UAB LLC and UAHSF to augment, or in lieu of, institutionally observed holidays. In 2020, employees were granted a one-time exemption by UAB and UAB Medicine to keep and roll over any unused personal holidays until June 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns and limitations. Senior leadership for the university and UAB Medicine have decided to extend this exemption for another year, and no unused or excess personal holidays will expire until June 2022.
