Ace Payroll receives many calls immediately after every public holiday, asking whether a particular employee is entitled to be paid for the public holiday.
For all these calls, the only answer Ace Payroll provides is
"An employee is usually entitled to be paid for a public holiday, if they would
have worked had the day not been a public holiday."
The above is correct in most cases, but there are some legal issues that may be relevant to your situation.
Assistance with these legal issues is well beyond what may be expected from a computer software help desk, and Ace Payroll does not provide legal advice. We mention the issues here, but for further information suggest you contact an appropriate legal advisor.
