What are the entitlements for part-time employees?
I am an employee covered by the Employment Act. As one of the part-time employees I know that the benefits and entitlement given to us are different from the ones given to the full-time employees, however I would still like to know what are the entitlement and benefits given to part-time employees such as myself.
Your entitlements for rest days, public holidays, overtime pay and leave are usually calculated based on how much you work. You are a part-time employee if you are under contract of service to work less than 35 hours a week. You are entitled for overtime pay if you exceed your regular hours of work. You are also entitled to 1 restday if you are required to work at least 5 days a week and you are entitled for pay if you work during the rest day. You are also entitled to payed public holidays. Lastly you are entitled to annual sick leaves, maternity leave, paternity leave and childcare leave if applicable.
