What can I claim for working on a public holiday?
Working on a public holiday (bank holidays) will always be paid at the rate of DOUBLE TIME whether for payment or time off. This also applies to part time working officers.

When a public holiday falls on a rest day, the bank holiday always take precedence, the rest day MUST be re-rostered to another day (after consultation with the officer). The re-rostered day is a rest day and all conditions applying to rest days apply to it. Should the officer then be required to work on the public holiday he/she would get paid or have time off at the rate of double time, (officers choice).

If an officer is informed that he/she is required to work on a bank holiday with less than 8 days notice, then in addition to getting paid double time for the bank holiday (or time off) he/she would also be entitled to another day off which shall be notified to him/her within 4 days of notification of the requirement and which shall be treated for the purpose of this regulation as a bank holiday.

If an officer works into a bank holiday beyond 0700hrs there is no half hour disregard. If such an officer was scheduled to not be working then the entitlement is double time for a miminum of four hours and a public holiday in lieu.
