    Default since Christmas is on a Saturday

    If you normally have Saturdays off and do not work on Christmas Day, then you are not entitled to general holiday pay and are not entitled to an extra day off. However, you may receive general holiday pay or an extra day off if it is a part of your employment contract or a part of a union agreement. Please check with your employer.
    this may affect some people where employer is not very nice

    I get monday and tuesday off (both paid) and half day on Friday (office closes at noon). Not as good as some other companies but it works for me. I believe I get the 3rd off and paid as well.

    I get it as a stat, but I also get boxing day. I haven't heard of anyone not getting it, your employer would have to be a douche.

    I get the 24th, 27th, 28th, and 3rd off. So if I use 3 of my banked OT/vacation days, I get over 1.5weeks of paid vacation. Guess my edumacation was good for something!

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    When I worked at an asian owned retail company, I learned this one the hard way. If Christmas landed on a weekend, new years did too - and we'd get screwed for both because we would not get the following day in lieu. That and Boxing day isn't legally a general holiday either. They followed the legislation on this pretty good.

    My company hasn't really stated anything yet, I will have to ask accounting tomorrow but I have a feeling its going to be the shaft on X-Mas and New Years and no day off in lieu and on top of that, they also are giving us the 24th off no pay though.

    Nice, now just to see if both jobs actually follow this. I got luck and don't work at all on Christmas but have been working 12 hour Saturdays for the past 5 months, work 8 hours at job number 2 on New Years so still get paid from job 1 and then time and a half I believe from job number 2.

    Our office closes at lunch on the 24th and doesn't open again until January 4th.

    On one hand the time off is real nice but man does shit back up. That first week back is always a mess.

    Please note that there are considerable differences if the company you're working for is provincially or federally regulated with respect to labour codes. Only 9 official holidays exist under both the Alberta Employment Standards and the Federal Labour Code, but it has to be noted that Boxing Day is not a holiday under the Alberta Employment Standards.

    Links...

    Alberta Employment Standards Holiday info

    Canada Labour Code general holidays info

    Canada Labour Code layman's version of the above link

    So first you have to figure out what regulations the company you work fall falls under - our company is provincially regulated and because we are closed Boxing Day (not an Alberta holiday but treated as such as we are closed that day due to our own choice), we still have to pay straight holiday pay to employees regularly scheduled to work that day.
    Will fuck off, again.

    And of course, workplaces that have negotiated union settlements/agreements in place may have additional things to consider to federal and provincial codes - when I worked for TELUS, we had 12 recognized holidays in the language under the union contract that applied to my job position there.
    Will fuck off, again.

    You guys should all be happy you're not stuck in a stinky overcrowded European Terminal. Goodbye vacation time...

    I love salary work. We get the 24th to the 4th off.
