Why PEOs are Advantageous for Small Businesses

If your company is between two and 200 employees, you’ll likely benefit from a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). Learn more about the PEO model.

The new custom holiday feature allows you to add holidays that are specific to your company and won’t be deducted from employee paychecks. Justworks automatically allows you to select federal holidays from a pre-populated list. But now you have the option to add other holidays, for instance Chinese New Year, Rosh Hashanah...or another day that’s specific to your company.

Custom holidays will integrate with Justworks, so you don’t need to worry about calculating paychecks or manually deducting time off associated with these holidays.

Let’s see how it works.

Set Up Custom Holidays

Here’s how to add custom holidays:

Justworks feature launch custom holidays

Navigate to Time Off Policies in the HR section of the navigation bar, and select the Holiday Schedule tab to view your current holidays. Simply click “Add a custom holiday” to get started.

Now, go ahead and enter the info associated with your custom holiday:

  • Enter the name of the new holiday

  • Select the date

  • Select yes or no to indicate whether the custom holiday is repeated annually.

  • If you’re entering a repeated holiday, you’ll want to indicate whether the holiday is repeated on a specific date of the month (e.g. New Year’s Eve is always December 31st) or day of the week (e.g. Columbus Day is always the second Monday of October, so the date varies)

Your custom holidays will appear in a new section above the standard Justworks Holidays. If you make a mistake or need to delete a custom holiday, just click the X to remove the custom holiday from the list.
