Memorial Day is one of the most observed holidays by employers, according to BLR's 2008 Survey of Employee Benefits.
Ninety-seven percent of employers offer Memorial Day as a paid holiday to exempt employees and nonexempt office workers. Ninety-five percent of employers offer the day as a paid holiday to nonexmpet plant workers.
Among the five regions of the country, employers in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic region are the most likely to offer Memorial Day as a paid holiday to employees. Employers in the South are least likely, according to the survey.
