You accrue your worked hours, of the public holidays, upon your overtime hours. This build-up can be found on your pay check under 'rights'. We look at the day which the public holiday is on and the average amount of hours that you worked on this day, the last 13 weeks. This is the amount that you will get paid. But be aware! This compensation applies until maximum of 8 hours per day. Do you not work normally on the day which the public holiday is on? Then you will not receive any public holiday compensation. Your wage reservation remains until the next public holiday.
