Independence Day 2020 (Federal Holiday)
Because July 4th falls on a Saturday this year, today is a federal holiday in the U.S. in recognition of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The Fair Labor Standards Act does not require employers to give any paid holidays, though most do (the number of such paid holidays varies). Businesses may choose to give employees the day off to create a 3-day weekend.
