MOM clarifies employee entitlements for Aug 27

SINGAPORE - The Manpower Ministry has reminded employers that Polling Day on Aug 27 is a public holiday and should be treated in the same manner as any other public holiday. It said all employees covered by the Employment Act are entitled to paid public holidays. If an employee is required to work on Polling Day, he is entitled to an extra day's salary for the day's work, or be given a day off. Employees who are not required to work on that day are also entitled to one day off-in-lieu, or be given one day's pay, similar to other public holidays falling on a Saturday.
