Holidays you get paid for=== There are ten public holidays in BC. They are called statutory holidays because the ''Employment Standards Act'' says they are holidays. Statute is another name for a law made by the government.
Normally, on a statutory holiday, you take the day off work but you still get paid. The statutory holidays are: *New Year's Day *Family Day *Good Friday *Victoria Day *Canada Day *British Columbia Day *Labour Day *Thanksgiving Day *Remembrance Day *Christmas Day Easter Sunday, Easter Monday, and Boxing Day are not statutory holidays, though many employers will offer employees a day off with pay on those dates. To get paid for the statutory holiday, you must: *have been employed for at least 30 calendar days, and *have worked on at least 15 of the 30 days before the statutory holiday. If you work under an averaging agreement any time in the 30 days before the statutory holiday, you automatically have the right to the statutory holiday. There are different payment rules which apply if you are required to work on a statutory holiday.
