PAYMENT OF PUBLIC HOLIDAY PAY*
This issue arose in the case of Top Security Limited/Top Security and Brian Scully DWT2214. This is a case where the Labour Court in an associated case had found that the Complainant’s normal working week was 48 hours per week. The Court held that the Complainant was entitled to be paid one fifth of his normal weekly rate of pay when granted a public holiday.
