If I Work More Than 40 Hours In A Week And 8 Hours On A Holiday, How Am I To Be Paid?

If you work in non­retail, the hours in excess of forty are to be paid at time and one half, the holiday is to be paid at time and one half and the remainder is to be paid straight time. Example: Total hours 60 and eight of these hours were worked on a holiday. Extract the overtime hours from the total = 20, these hours are to be paid at time and one half. Extract the eight from the remaining forty = 32. Eight hours are to be paid at time and one half premium pay for working the holiday and 32 hours are straight time. If you work in retail, the holiday hours are extracted first and paid at time and one half. If there are hours over 40 in the balance, these hours are to be paid at time and one half also. Example: Same as above, extract the holiday hours from the total hours and the balance is 52. The eight hours are to be paid at time and one half premium pay. Because there are hours in excess of forty in the balance, these 12 hours must be paid at time and one half for the overtime. The balance of 40 is paid at straight time. The city/town councils shall grant licenses for the sale by retail establishment at any places in that town or city designated in those licenses on Sundays.
