Does 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.
