Holidays Act Q&A: employees working July 2, 2012 get stat pay

Q:  Im scheduled to work July 1, and not on July 2.  However, my employer says that I will not be getting paid at the -statutory holiday" rate for work on July 1.  Is this right?

A:  This year, July 1 falls on a Sunday.  According to the federal Holidays Act, this means the legal statutory holiday is July 2.  For 2012, members working July 2 will receive stat pay ... not those working July 1.
