If an employee works any of the above Public Holidays, they are entitled to their basic rate of pay for working that day, as well as benefiting from any of the below:
If the Public Holiday falls on a day the employee worked or is normally required to work, then they are entitled to remuneration equivalent to the hours the employee worked on their last working day before the holiday. If it is a day they are not normally required to work or did not work, then the employee is entitled to remuneration equivalent to one-fifth of their last normal working week.
