Public Holiday : be paid two days’ wages at the ordinary rate of pay regardless that the period of work done on that day is less than the normal hours of work.
Based on the above definition of rest day and public holiday rates, this field should be used for work carried out on rest days and public holidays. The total will be “daily rate” x “no. of days”.
- For one rest day, enter 1.0 as 1.0 has already been paid in monthly wages.
- For public holiday, enter 2.0 as 1.0 has already been paid in monthly wages.
- Based on the employment act, even a 10 minute work on a rest day should be paid half day wages. Similarly for public holiday, full day wages.
- Hours Deduct : Deduct “hours” x 1.0
- Days Deduct : Deduct based on formula “daily rate” = basic pay / 26
- Prorated Days : Deduct based on formula “daily rate” = basic pay / no. of days in month. (This option will be available in April 2016 Update)
