Shall an employee receive payment in the case that weekly rest days coincide public holidays?

on .

An employee who works full time for six days shall be allowed to take a rest for a minimum of twenty-four hours (weekly rest day) without interruption within a seven-day period. For the unworked rest day, the employer shall pay the employee’s daily wage, without any work obligation in return.

In the case that the weekly rest days coincide with public holidays, the employer has no obligation to pay additional payment or give an additional rest day to the employee. In other words, coinciding of public holidays and weekly rest days does not entitle employees to two days’ payment or two days of weekly rest.
