Double pay?
Please could you help me with a query regarding renumeration?

Our Company works 12 hour shifts i.e 6 - 18 and 18 - 6......if the shift ''spills over'' into Public Holidays or Sundays......are we entitled to ''double time''?

thanking you in anticipation.

If the shift is the majority on a public holiday or a sunday then you are entitled to double pay for public holidays and one and a hlaf times for sundays.
