St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): An image making the rounds on social media suggested that the upcoming holiday on Monday, January 3, would be a regular working day.
The Labour Department issued a communication on social media platform Facebook debunking the claim.
Officials confirmed that the notice was not released by the St Kitts and Nevis Department of Labour, but rather by the Department of Labour of Antigua and Barbuda, and therefore does not apply to workers of the Federation.
The Labour Department subsequently sent out another statement reminding the general public that staff working on the upcoming holidays, January 1 and 3, should be paid twice their normal rate in accordance with The Statutory Rules and Orders No. 35 of 2008.
The same was applicable for December 25 and 27.
