Question & AnswerDoes my employer have to pay me for public holidays?
2. Figure out your holiday pay
To figure out your :
- add up your plus vacation pay, for the 4 work weeks before the work week with the holiday in it
- divide that total by 20
You can also figure out your holiday pay using the Ministry of Labour's online Public Holiday Pay Calculator.
If you work 5 days a week and the same number of hours each day, holiday pay is the same as the you normally get for a day's work.
