Extra Day for Public Holidays Falling on Saturday
Dear HR Professionals,
The 2nd day of Chinese New Year in 2018 falls on a Saturday. Would you mind sharing what is the policy at your company?
- Do you give one extra leave?
- Do you have one day where everyone is off together?
- Is it a common practice even though for a example some employees (eg PMETs) are not covered by employment act?
Hoping to push for this extra day in mine, thank you for your help!
As per Company Policy, we provide an additional day of AL for all staff, regardless of whether they're covered by EA or not.
