Offday falling on a holiday

I am working for a private company on visa Article 18 (work permit). My regular day off is falling on a holiday. In such a case am I entitled to another day off or will the company pay me overtime (and if so, how much would be the rate for the overtime pay).

Name withheld

Answer: Well it’s just your bad luck that the official holiday is falling on your weekly off day. There is nothing you can do about it nor is the company bound to give you an alternative day off. That happens only in the government sector, whose laws don’t apply to the private sector. You are also not entitled to any overtime... you get overtime for working on an official holiday or weekly off day, not for sitting at home - regardless of the fact that both the offs are falling on the same day.
