Section 60D(3) of the Employment Act, may be provide the info:
"...(3) (a) Notwithstanding subsections (1), (1A) and (1B), any employee may be required by his employer to work on any paid holiday to which he is entitled under the said subsections and in such even he shall, in addition to the holiday pay he is entitled to for that day:
(i) in the case of employee employed on a monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, or other similar rate of pay, be paid two days' wages at the ordinary rate of pay; or
(ii) in the case of an employee employed on piece rates, be paid twice the ordinary rate per piece:
regardless that the period of work done on that day is less than the normal hours of work. ...."
Coz currently my boss is asking us to work on the Coming Prophet Muhammad Holiday (20th March)
My employment is permanent staff of the company. and the OT rate would be RM13 per hour. And on that day it will be working for 8 hour. So I can have a claim of RM104. However my salary if counted daily basis should be RM80.
Anyway even if I will get double pay for working on the stated public holiday, I am still not interested to come for work.
