How about the overtime wage on New Year's Day 2019?
How much overtime pay can you get for working overtime on New Year's Day 2019? According to the Convention, new year's Day 2019 is a legal holiday. Therefore, when workers work on the day of the legal holiday, the employer should pay the overtime wage at 300% of the daily wage, which cannot be offset by the compensatory leave. December 30, 2018 is the weekend, so the employer can arrange overtime for the employee, and can choose to arrange compensatory leave for the employee or pay overtime wage at no less than 200% of the daily wage of the employee.
Do you need to work overtime on January 1, 2019, take compensatory leave or pay overtime?
According to the labor law, if a worker is arranged to work on a rest day and cannot be arranged to take a rest day, he shall be paid not less than 200% of his salary. It can be seen that after working overtime on the rest day, the enterprise can first arrange the compensatory leave, and only when it is unable to arrange the compensatory leave can it pay the overtime fee of no less than 200% of the wage.
In other words, after working overtime on weekends, it's up to the enterprise to decide whether to arrange compensatory leave or pay overtime pay. Employees have no choice. According to the provisions of relevant laws and regulations, the employer must pay overtime wages only for overtime work at night and on national holidays.
New year's day has a total of three days off, but according to the current national regulations, only January 1 is a national holiday, and the other two days are the two days before and after the weekend. Therefore, the overtime on the first day is the overtime on national holidays, and overtime pay (calculated by 300%) must be paid. For the other two days, the overtime is on weekends, and the enterprise shall decide whether to arrange or pay the overtime pay.
