with problems at work?
Should any employee work on a public holiday, it must be noted that no employer may require any employee to work on a public holiday except in accordance with an agreement with the employee to do so.
If the public holiday falls on a day on which the employee would normally work, the employee is entitled to that day off on full pay, or if he does not work on that day then he is entitled to be paid his ordinarily daily wage plus the amount earned by him for the work performed on that day.
Should the public holiday fall on a day on which the employee would ordinarily work then if he works on that public holiday he is entitled to be paid at least double his normal wage rate for the day, or if he does not work, he is entitled to have the day off and be paid his normal wage rate for the day.
Hi, please advise if the same will apply to a Gardner who only works one a week. Should the public holiday fall on that day and the Gardner opts not to work... Am I still liable to pay the Gardner for the day?
