Employees who work on holidays are paid more than the overtime rate on regular days (regular hourly rate + 25 percent of regular hourly rate).

The difference in the definition of the categories is reflected in their separate pay rates. Those who work on regular holidays are paid at least 200 percent of the sum of their daily rate and cost of living allowance.

Employees who work on special non-working days are paid at least 130 percent of the sum of their daily rate and cost of living allowance.
