6.02. Holiday pay and movable holiday pay is equal to 8 or 10 times the hourly rate, according to the employee’s regular schedule, plus the shift differential, as the case may be. Holiday pay for general holidays between 23 December and 2 January is equal to 8 times the hourly rate for a maximum of 40 hours per week.
If the employee must work during a holiday, the employer is not compelled to pay the holiday pay provided for in the first paragraph in addition to the wages for the work performed, if the employer grants the employee a compensatory holiday of one day on a date agreed upon between the employer and the employee. If there is no agreement between the employer and the employee for the taking of the compensatory holiday, the employer must pay the holiday pay provided for the first paragraph to the employee.
However, in the case of an occupational disease or employment injury acknowledged by the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail, the employee receives the difference between the indemnity received from the Commission and the amount that he would normally have received if he had not been absent.
