Regular holidays and Special days

Some people are confused between regular holiday and special non-working days.

We know what is common between the two: there’s no work, meaning you can relax. But depending on the exigencies of the business, some employees are required to work by their employer.

The law recognizes that requiring employees to work is an intrusion into the private life of the employees. It is time away from their families and therefore must be compensated.

So, the difference between the two, practically speaking, and I mean the money employees will get is this:

On regular holidays, if you work, you will get 200% of your daily salary.

On special non-working days, if you work, you will only be paid 130% of your daily salary.
