40% of Employers Require Some Work on Labor Day

In the U.S., Labor Day typically means the end of summer, the beginning of the school year, and one last chance to celebrate a 3-day weekend with a backyard barbecue. But while most workers will enjoy a paid day off on Monday Sept. 7, more than 40% of employers require some work to be done, according to a survey by Bloomberg BNA.

Of more than 100 human resources professionals were surveyed, 41% indicated that their employers require some employees to work on the holiday. According to the survey, technical and security/public safety personnel are the most likely employees to do some work on the holiday.
