The employer is obliged to grant an additional day off for a Saturday holiday. In the near future, this obligation applies to December 25, 2021 (Saturday) and January 1, 2022 (Saturday).
The day off should be granted to the employee within a given settlement period, i.e. if the Employer’s settlement period is a monthly period, then the day off for December 25 should be granted in December 2021. Giving a day off may take place both before and after a given holiday.
If the employer does not grant the employee a day off for a public holiday falling on Saturday, after the end of the settlement period, he will be obliged to pay 100% of overtime remuneration.
The employer may agree with the employees on convenient collection dates, the same for all employees, but there are no obstacles to give each employee a day off for a holiday on an individual date for him.
If the employee is sick on the day designated as a day off due to a Saturday holiday, he does not need to be granted the day off on another date.
Please provide information on the date of collection of the holiday by employees along with data for the payroll for December and January.
