Hi,I am shift worker. 4 working days(12 hour per day) and 4 days off.I want to ask what if during my working day,there is public holiday,do I entitle for overtime that day?(for 12 working hour)because my employer mention there is no public holiday overtime for us because company already give shift allowance.overtime will only be paid if we work more than 12 hours that day

thanks

I don't think that's a correct way to pay overtime. Consult the Labour Department for official ruling and let your company know about it.
