(2) If an employee does not work on a public holiday [as defined in subclause (1) above]—
(a) which falls on a day which otherwise is an ordinary working day for him, his employer shall pay to him in respect of that public holiday an amount not less than the remuneration payable to him in respect of the time (excluding overtime) which is ordinarily worked by him on that day of the week;
(b) which falls on a Saturday or during the period of annual leave referred to in clause 14, his employer shall pay to him in respect of that public holiday an amount not less than one fifth of his ordinary weekly wage.

 

(3) Whenever an employee works on a public holiday which otherwise is an ordinary working day for him, his employer shall pay him remuneration at a rate not less than his ordinary hourly wage in respect of the total period worked on that public holiday in addition to the remuneration he would ordinarily have received [as set out in subclause (2) (a) above].

 

(4) Whenever an employee works on a public holiday which otherwise is not an ordinary working day for him, his employer shall pay him—
(a) either an amount at least equal to the remuneration payable to him in respect of the time (excluding overtime) ordinarily worked by him on a working day; or
(b) remuneration at a rate not less than his ordinary hourly wage in respect of the total period worked on that public holiday, whichever is the greater, in addition to an amount not less than one fifth of his ordinary weekly wage.

 

(5) Remuneration payable to an employee in terms of subclauses (2), (3) or (4) shall be paid out to him no later than the payday next succeeding the day in respect of which such remuneration is payable.
