It is important to note that part-time employees are also covered by the Employment Act in regard to entitlements for rest days, public holidays, overtime pay and leave. Part-timers working less than 35 hours a week and are entitled to rest days, overtime pay and pro-rated leave.

  • Does Leave for part-time workers include annual leave, sick leave, maternity leave and childcare leave.
