Will I be paid for public holidays, and if so, for how many?
Public holidays are generally considered non-working days, and if you would normally work on a public holiday, according to your schedule, you may be entitled to receive payment for that day. The general rule is that a holiday is paid if
a. the temporary worker has worked at least seven times on the specific day over a period of thirteen consecutive weeks immediately prior to the public holiday in question; or
b. the temporary worker has not yet worked for thirteen consecutive weeks and has worked on the day in question in more than half the number of weeks in which work was performed.
If you are in doubt about whether a holiday payment was correctly processed in your case, please send an email to email@example.com and request an explanation.
