Off in Lieu

QUESTION

Dear HR Practitioners,

I would like to find out how many days of Off In Lieu do we give to a staff who works on a PH that falls on Sunday with Monday as the PH in lieu.

The regular workday for the staff is on Wednesday to Sunday. Monday and Tuesday is his regular off day Do we give one or two days off in lieu?

Kindly advise, thank you!

The PH in-lieu to be given will be for the actual PH date that your staff had agreed to come back to work base on his schedule.

In SG, there is normally 11 PH in a year, exception come during election years.

Normal confusion comes from:

PH fall on Sunday

PH list from MOM with * indicate that the following Monday is a PH (this is given to all others who always get their stipulated OFF day on Sunday, so that they will be given Monday as their PH, it doesn’t mean that if you are on roster, you get both Sunday and Monday as PH and given 2 PH in-lieu).

“The regular workday for the staff is on Wednesday to Sunday. Monday and Tuesday is his regular off day Do we give one or two days off in lieu?”

Base on your example given:
Sunday is the actual PH, the staff should be going for the PH on Sunday, base on normal roster.

However, if roster are given that all PH will be working day and be given PH in-lieu:
Sunday is the actual PH, staff get 1 day PH in-lieu. That * marked to give Monday as PH, that is given for those who get Sunday as fix Rest day, as explained the in the PH given by MOM as well.
The staff will still get 1 PH in-lieu. When you total the PH in a year for this staff, it will be the same as everyone, normally 11 days.
