The Labor Day Office Closed Flyer is available for free and can be used by offices to denote they are closed during their regular hours in observance of this holiday.
Labor Day is a federal holiday that is observed on the first Monday of September for those in the United States. Federal offices including the post office and courthouses are closed on Labor Day. Trash pickup and collection services are also typically not available on Labor Day, but pick back up on Tuesday.
Many businesses also observe this holiday by giving their employees the day off to enjoy well-deserved time with their family and friends. With Labor Day falling on a Monday, this often creates a three-day weekend for employees to enjoy, depending on their work schedule and if they are off on weekends.

Labor Day History
Labor Day pays tribute to many Americans for their contributions and achievements as American workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894 by the labor movement in the late 19th century. Labor Day is also a symbol for the end of summer for many Americans and is celebrated by Labor Day parties in the office, at home, with parades and at athletic events.
This annual celebration of workers and their achievements originated during one of American labor history’s most gloomy chapters. At the height of the Industrial Revolution in the late 1800’s in the United States, the average American worked 12 hour days 7 days a week in order to make a basic living. Despite some state restrictions, children as young as ages 5 and 6 worked in mills, factories and mines across the country earning a fraction of their adult counterpart wages. We celebrated the first Labor Day years later on September 5, 1882 in New York.
