What is Holiday Pay?

Holiday pay refers to the pay that an employee receives for taking time off for a holiday or vacation. The specifics of holiday pay can vary depending on the company's policy, country and jurisdiction laws. In some cases, holiday pay is calculated as a percentage of the employee's regular pay, while in other cases it may be based on the employee's average pay over a certain period of time.

In general, most of the countries have legal requirements that mandate employers to offer a certain number of days of paid leave to employees. Some countries also require employers to pay additional compensation for holidays that fall on weekends or other non-work days.

It's important to note that not all countries have the same legal requirements regarding holiday pay and some might not have any laws regarding this. Employers should consult with legal counsel or human resources experts familiar with the laws of the country in which they operate to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations.
