If I normally have SUNDAY + MONDAY OFF (as my usual roster)

Do I get tuesday off??

So I am expecting the following: I will work saturday, have sunday off (shop shut) - monday is a public holiday so everyone gets that off, but I think they are wanting me to return on tuesday?

If I work tuesday, would I be paid double time on Saturday?

Which means that everyone gets 3 days off, apart from me?

Please help lol :)

I would assume tue is normal pay + hours cause its a normal trading day.

Mon is the public holiday so reduced hours and increased pay. Makes no difference if this is your usual day off.

Saturday normal pay and hours.

I dunno if there is any legal obligation from the employer, but if he/she was a good bloke you should be a day off at an agreed time.

RDO's are just nice, but if they land on a pub holiday, you suck it up. Unless the employer tells you otherwise. They're not enforced by law afaik?

depends we used to get a SDL "Shift Day in Liu".

If you had an RDO on a Public Holiday.

SDO was either another day off with agreement paid, or Paid for the Public Holiday at normal rates.

All depends on who you work for and there HR rules for leave.

This is a tough one murderer. Do you get paid more for working on saturdays? If no, then you are being stooged. A monday off does not equal a saturday worked.

Other places that I've worked that run on a seven day a week roster ignore public holidays, but instead give staff six weeks leave a year.

Essentially if you are swapping saturday for monday then you should get paid at public holiday rates for saturday.

yer but saturday isnt the gazetted public holiday its the monday.
so they dont have to pay him public holiday rates for saturday, just normal saturday rates.

He should be entitled to the equivalent of another day off in liu of an RDO on a public holiday tho.
