  • With Labour Day coming up this weekend, here is a reminder of the law regarding public holidays.

    An employee is entitled to be paid at least time and a half for the hours they actually work on Labour Day. If the public holiday is an “otherwise working day” for the employee, they are also entitled to an alternative holiday (day-in-lieu) to be taken at a later date.

    If an employee is given Labour Day off and it is on a day they would have normally worked, the employee is entitled to payment for the day. The payment is the amount the employee would have earned that day (their relevant daily pay or average daily pay), this includes staff on an hourly rate. An employee who does not work and wouldn’t normally work on the day in question is not entitled to payment. For instance, if a public holiday falls on an employee’s rostered day off, they are not entitled to payment for that day.
