Workers must get paid time off for public holidays, but if they agree to work, they must be paid double their normal wage.

Sectoral Determination 9 applies to all employers and workers in the wholesale and retail sector, including those associated with-
warehousing, or
distribution operations.

The determination does not apply to workers who are covered by-
another sectoral determination, or
a bargaining council agreement.

The Basic Conditions of Employment Act applies in respect of any matter not covered by this sectoral determination.
