    Question about CNY holiday for helper

    There are 3 statutory holidays during CNY, Thurs, Fri and Sat. My helper's day off is on a Saturday (her preference because her sister and cousin both get Saturdays off at their jobs). So my question is if her day off is already on a Sat and it is also a statutory holiday, do I need to give her another day off for the statutory holiday?

    Hope it makes sense.

    I think you need to consider Saturday a holiday and compensate for another Saturday because the statutory holiday is different from the one in her contract right?

    just my thought.

    Yes, that's what I thought. I will gladly let her have another day off, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
