    In Sc What Are The Labor Laws On Working On A Schedule Holiday?
    Example, New Years Is On Saturday But Company Has A Schedule Monday As A Payed Holiday. Then Tells An Employee That They Need To Work That Day And Will Have An Extra Vacation Day And No Extra Pay Other Than Normal Pay.Can A Company Make You Work This Day And Can They Just Pay You Normal Pay?

    This has GOT to be the two-dozenth time I have answered this question since Thanksgiving. Doesn't anyone ever use the search feature?

    Yes, you can be required to work on the holiday and no, they do not need to pay you anything except straight time. There are NO laws requiring that you be given ANY holidays off and there are NO laws in your state (or any other except Massachusetts and only sometimes there) requiring private employers to pay a premium for working on the holiday.

    If you post back, please use normal capitalization and punctuation. Capitalizing every word makes your post very hard to read.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Thanks for the reply. So my employer does have to give in writing notification that one will be working that day , seven days before ?

        That would depend on exactly how the terms of your initial notification are worded.
