How to Use the Holiday Pay Rate Calculator
An increase in holiday salary or holiday pay is not required to be followed by companies unless it is stated in the employment contract. However, employers may announce special increase in salary during holidays especially if it's a non-working day.
The most common holiday pay rate is double pay or 2x your regular salary rate and also the 50% increase or commonly referred to as time and a half pay. While others impose a 30% salary increase during that day.
Holiday Pay Rate Calculator is used to determine your holiday pay during that day. You can then get the result and add it to your weekly or bi-weekly salary. This calculator only takes into account the regular pay, hours worked on holiday and holiday pay rate or increase.
