Statutory Holidays

      articles icon

After an employee has worked for 30 calendar days, an employer must either give her a day off with pay on each statutory holiday or pay her increased wage rates for working on the holiday.

An employee who is given the day off for statutory holiday is entitled to be paid as if he had worked his regular hours or an amount calculated under the regulations. An employee who must work on a statutory holiday is entitled to be paid at least 1.5 times his regular wage for the time worked up to 11 hours and double his regular wage for any time worked over 11 hours. An employee working on a statutory holiday is also entitled to a day off with pay.
