Holiday pay during workman's comp "light duty"
If you have an hourly employee on "light duty", ordered by a doctor, but one of those light duty days is a holiday, are they entitled to be paid 8 hours of holiday pay? I have a situation where an employee was put on light duty for a week and the Monday of that week was a holiday. Since he would have normally only worked that day for 5 hours, instead of 8, he was only paid for 5 hours of holiday pay even though everyone else in the company was paid 8?
On his employment offer letter, it states he will be paid for 5 holidays a year, this holiday was on the list.
