Is industrial trainee/intern entitled to public holiday?

Hi, I'm a trainee undergoing an internship programme. During the interview, I've been told that I'm not entitled for any public holiday which puzzled me. I do have friends undergoing their internship in other company but they are entitled to public holiday. Is there any law protecting the interns? Do labour law in Malaysia clearly stated that trainee are eligible for public holiday? 

Thank you

The Employment Act covers employees but I am not sure whether those going for internship are employees of the company. Consult the local Labour Department by giving more details about the internship programme. Anyway, don't sign any contract which you are not sure about the terms and conditions.
