Re: Absent Before & Aferter Holiday

My co have come out a memo notices that if worker absent on duties before and after holiday ( Holiday : Sunday rest day, Co. Indication holiday & Public Holiday ) co will deducted worker pay included the day of holiday ( although worker still have annual leave )

eg : I was Absent work on 23/03 Monday
Co was deducted total 3days unpaid leave which included 21/3 was co indicated holiday + 22/3 Sunday rest day and 23/3 absent on Monday for personal reason.

Co have give me a chance did not take on above action on my 1st absent fall after Sunday rest day.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

About absent before or after, Section 60D(2) see below:

"60D(2) Any employee who absents himself from work on the working day immediately preceding or immediately succeeding a public holiday or two or more consecutive public holidays or any day or days substituted therefor under this section without the prior consent of his employer shall not be entitled to any holiday pay for such holiday or consecutive holidays unless he has a reasonable excuse for such absence. "

To me, in your case, it is not quite correct to deduct salary for that Sunday. In order to avoid future confusion, confirm with the Labour Department.
