When dealing with the effect of public holidays on business, regard must be had to the Public Holiday Act, 1994. The Act specifies 12 days as public holidays. In addition, it provides that whenever a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is deemed to be a public holiday. If operations are conducted on a Sunday, but not on a public holiday, a dispute may arise in the event that a public holiday falls on the Sunday, as to whether employees are entitled to be paid for the public holiday on both the Sunday and the Monday.
