Are employees entitled to an extra day's pay in a leap year?

An employee's entitlement to pay for the extra day in a leap year depends on whether they are salaried or are paid according to the hours they work.

A salaried employee who receives the same basic pay every month will not be entitled to extra pay to account for the extra day in 2020. These workers are paid a set salary for the year, and it does not make a difference if that year includes an extra working day (except in the unlikely event that their contract provides for additional pay in a leap year).

An employee who is paid according to the hours they work, or the amount of work they do, will be entitled to be paid for all work they do, regardless of the date or number of days in the year.
