PART III - PAYMENT OF WAGES  
19. Time of payment of wages.

" ....Every employer shall pay to each of his employees not later than the seventh day ..."

    On salary pay delay 7th-day for June-2014 is 7th July but it is Public holiday , can I pay on 8th July ?

I don't think the Labour Department will penalise for that. But if you could plan ahead all would be quite happy with you if you could pay before holiday and weekend.

Thank KL Siew ,

​Is it mean even rather than 7th Day also no problem?

Is it not mean if can not pay on day 7th must be pay day 6th , if day 6th can not must day 5th , etc....?

And how I can declare the reason of delay payment over 7th day , 
a holiday of bank is sound reasonable?

Thank you

Consult the Labour Department and get an official view, you may feel better that way.
