There is no law per se. The law refers to your employment contract, and it is your employment contract which should stipulate when you are paid. My company recently changed the salary payment date, after many requests from the staff, to the 27th of each month, if that day falls on a public holiday or a Sunday we are paid the following day, but if that day falls on a Saturday we are paid on the day before (the Friday). I don't know what would happen if our pay day was Saturday and the Friday (day before) was a Public Holiday. I guess we will address that situation if it ever occurs.
Not sure, never had a Public Holiday on a pay day.. Always just before or after, like 16th, 27th, 30th, 1st, etc... But, weekends, the day before the weekend, so, I recon the day before the Public Holiday?
There is no law or rule. If they want to pay you after the holiday or weekend they can do so.
I searched through 2 labour law websites and couldn't find an answer. My instinct tells me that if the payday is on public holiday, but the next day is a regular working day, it can wait until next working day. If public holiday is followed by another public holiday or a weekend, pay before public holiday.
Deffinitly the day before.
I think that, legally, you should be paid the day before, but I am not sure. Try
We usually get paid before public holiday or weekend... Check though, it all depends on ur employer...
No idea. but our payday falls on 27th of each month, and we got paid on Sunday
Basically(unless specified)an employer only has to pay you on the last day of the month.Most pay before i.e 25th or thereabouts.If the last day of the month falls on a weekend they have to pay on the Friday or Sat.
I guess it depends on the employer. If payday falls on a saturday then we get paid the day before. If payday falls on a public holiday then we get paid the day before.
for your sake and mine it better be paid after the holiday to avoid stupid spending. but it should be before sadly
If payday is on weekend, get pay on Friday. Same if payday is on public holliday, get pay before.....
Unluck for us we are commission earners, and our salaries are only worked out very late in the day, on the last day of every month..I have 2 acc's. Luckily one of the banks I bank with are the same as our companies, and our one salary can go in if we want it to...But usually if there is a public holiday, we can either take an advance or wait till the day after the holiday. We prefer to wait
What does your contract say? I'm in the fortunate position of having a boss who do internet transfers. If the 25th is on a Saturday, she'll pay us on the 24th and if the 25th is on a Sunday, she'll usually pay us on the 26th. Or even on the 24th.
you lucky someone is still willing to employ and pay a dumb sod like you!
