When a regular holiday is declared, classes are suspended on that day, as well as most private and government offices. If an employee needs to work on the said day, they must be compensated by their employer and will be paid 200% of their daily rate for that day.
A special non-working holiday also affects schools and most offices as well. Those that need to work during the holiday will be given an additional 30%.
