Yes they have to pay you time and a half on sundays and holidays.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

i get paid slightly more than time and a half
check with your boss/manager or even another employee

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

depends on your work agreement or place of employment, only way to find out is ask, and if you don't want to ask the boss, ask someone else who has worked there a while. it is only a natural question.

where i worked yes saterdays were always time and a half, and public holidays double time.

but i know on a salary wage (paid on a yearly amount, but can be paid weekly, monthly or yearly) don't usually get time and a half or even over time.

I work as a waitress in Australia and I get paid the same amount no matter what day I work.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Depends on the labor laws in your area. In Texas, you must work a total of 40 hours within 1 work week before you get time + one-half. The employer usually determine what the work week is (Sun-Sat or Weds-Tues, etc.) There are also some fields that do not qualify for this type of compensation and their time get calculated for a 2 week periods (nurses are part of this category).

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No. Depends on the contract you signed.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

depends on award you belong to, my staff (casuals) get paid time and 1/2 on saturdays and double on Sundays triple on public holidays. My full time staff and including me as manager get paid salary therefore do not get paid for public holidays/ or weekend rates, ask you boss he/she will gladly explain your pay rates

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

No employment contracts may vary. but there is no law requiring an employer to pay an employee a different rate for working Sundays or other Holidays as compared with what a worker on same wage gets paid for working a normal Monday to Friday. However an employer may insert into an employment contract different rates of pay, perhaps as a result of Union negotiations, or perhaps because the employer needs to offer more just to persuade less willing personnel to come into work on that day of the week they like being at home with their family on?

The issue of working night shifts is similar. There is no legal entitlement for any worker to be paid more per hour for working a night shift than working the same number of hours during a day shift.
