Who has Friday off from work?

I don't, I have to work 6 hours.
Tried to get out of it.

My reason was that I'm an alter boy and I have to be at all three masses. My supervisor believed it but i messed up and started laughing as he gave the okay and went with it.

I do and this is the first *proper* long weekend since I quit the part time job and took on the 9-5 proper and im not even going crazy tonight

i arranged lunch plans with my mum tomorrow in chinatown since i figure I'll be up at the usual time anyway (earlier if the boy actually gets me up for the star trek marathon *we have arranged the lunch plans to follow khan and avoid search for spock*)

I work... 4:30 - 2am :(

But I'm on my way to decadence right now... maybe I'll just call in "tired" for a couple hours.

Instead of making excuses you could just explain what "statutory holiday" means to your employer!

Not my SO... he's been at work since 5 and will be there until 3... I am going to study until 1, so I guess I am sort of not off either.

you mean that the employer has to pay you time + 1/2 for you work that day, right? cuz that's all it's meant to my last two employers. technical support sucks. if you use the internet and it's not working the way you expect, call for help on monday.

Actually, if you say you're taking the day off there's nothing they can do about it no matter how much they pay you. If you do choose to work they pay you 1.5X and you also get a day's pay or a day off in lieu in addition to that.

oh yes, right. the statutory holiday pay. that's in effect. now i'll have to suffer through everyone all day saying "i'm getting paid 2.5x my regular wage today." except you're not. the stat pay is based on the last 3 weeks of work. if you've missed time, it will be less than a full 8 hours. but that's neither here nor there.

oh, and as for 'choosing' to work today, the same could be said for any day of the week. of course, if i 'choose' to not work today, my employer would very likely 'choose' to reprimand me on monday. don't give me that bullshit.

Seeing how many people @ work today - I am wondering what ALL is open in the city .

Here in the land of the boring the doors are locked on all the stores ...
Even STARBUCKS is closed at my local mall.

Hope everyone that is working is being paid correclty & not being ripped off by cheap employers.

i'm working today but get monday off. it was pretty much a flip of the coin between me and the other person who does the same job as me.

the last bus i take en route to work usually has about 45 people on it. today it had 3.
