Nope. Neither is a public (Federal) holiday in the US.
 
 
However, being in the UK, you should be able to observe this holiday as it is a religious festival, not an arbitrary Bank Holiday, if memory serves.
 
I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

If you work in the UK then you are entitled to UK Bank Holidays.

It is irrelevant that you work for a US company.

That shouldn't make any difference, Crackerman because:
 
1) It is a statutory bank holiday in the UK and therefore you are entitled to it as you are based in the UK ( or double time etc etc)
 
2) The USA is still a Christian country and Good Friday is one of the most important days in the Christian calendar so I would expect American companies to have the day off too.
 
Masterfoods (Mars) are American and all the UK associates had Good Friday and Easter Monday off as normal. Associates based in France had French bank holidays etc etc; such is the law of the land!
 
 i have to work good friday and easter sat.........Cry

Bank Holidays are not enshrined in law in this country as days off. Your company decides if you get them and can even make you use holiday to take them:
