Dear Sir,

My company asking us back to work on Sunday or Public Holiday, but they don't want pay us the overtime.
So can we get the replacement leave? how many day we can get if:
1 ) Sunday

The Employment Act did not make an provision for replacement for working on Sundays or public holidays, you work you should get paid. In your case, I think you should negotiate with your employer how to go about it. Some think they will lose out if they only get one day replacement for working on a public holiday. Consult the Labour Department see if they can be of any help.

Dear Siew,

many thanks for your advice. Because we have pratice long time that we only get the replacement off day only.

Noted, will check with labour department again...

Thank you very much.

Best regards!
