    Good day.

    For apr 9 holiday, Does this mean an employee gets extra day of pay if he/she is a monthly paid employee and did not work that day. Or the pay doesn’t change e.g. the employee is getting 4k every 10th and 25th it will remain as it is since he/she is monthly paid. Thank you

      Hi Jerone. If monthly-paid employee, deemed paid if he/she does not work on that date. Otherwise stated, there should be no deduction for not working on that day. No additional pay, unless the monthly-paid employee works on the holiday. Good luck.
