The Town of Clinton acknowledges that federal and state law requires that the town accommodate the religion of its employees. As such, employees will not be penalized for exercising their religious beliefs and with the approval of the employee's supervisor/department head, employees that wish to be absent from work for religious holidays will be able to do so, provided however, that such time off is without compensation. The previously listed holidays are the only paid holidays offered by the Town.
