An employee gets an alternative holiday for working on a public holiday that is an otherwise working day.
Summary of minimum leave and holiday entitlements for employees.
Employees get a paid day off on a public holiday if it’s a day they would have normally worked on. If they work on that public holiday they’re paid time and a half and get an alternative day off.
To work out an employee’s rights to public holidays, alternative holidays, sick leave and bereavement leave, you need to know whether the employee would have otherwise worked that day.
Bereavement leave is a special kind of paid leave that all employees who meet certain criteria can use if someone close to them dies.
