Re: Public holiday for Hourly Worker

Hi Siew,

I would like to check with you on this:

If hourly worker paid RM 5 per hour. If he worked on 31 August, so his pay will RM 10 per hour or RM 15 per hour?

Hi Siew, isn't it RM10 refering to "twice the ordinary rate" stated in EA Sec.60D(3)(a)(i)&(ii)?

Hi CK, must note the words in that section " addition to the holiday pay he is entitled to ...."

(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

If RM10 is true for working on PH, then working on rest day will only be RM5, no different from working on ordinary days. It cannot be, isn't it?
