Default Terming And Last Day Falls On A Holiday

So I have had a family give me their 30 day notice... It just so happens that the last day of their care would fall on a holiday. I am closed on holidays and they are paid days for me. The client is asking to take thier child for one extra day, becuase of the holiday.

In my book this should still count as the 30th day and care should end. Its not days of care, it's calendar days..... UGH

how would you take this?

They decided to term at that time. I'd stick with the policy and let their last day be the holiday. No extra days. Because then technically you'd be working an extra day for free.

N-O-P-E!!!!!!

They chose the day to term. If they wanted an extra day, they should have chosen another day.

don't do anything extra, they are on their way out anyway and your contract already allows for this paid holiday. I'd rather take the holiday unpaid then take care of the kids for an extra day, thats just me.

I am sure you are doing pre-pay.....
