    When a Holiday falls on a Monday and you give your guys off, with the understanding they would have to work on Saturday to make it up, do you count the Holiday hours as hours worked, resulting in Saturday being OT. Or do pay them Holiday pay and 40 hours of regular pay?

    Over Time (OT) is ONLY paid for hours over 40 WORKED.

    I use QuickBooks Pro to figure payroll. It seperates types of pay: hrs worked, holiday hrs,vacation hrs, sick hrs, and make up your own "rain hours" so if it rains all week, they can afford to work for you next week.

    We schedule 8 hours a day. any paid holiday would be 8 hrs, even if we work more once in a while. Ifwe worked 4 10 hr days, I count the holiday 10 hrs, I guess. no i wouldn't.

    We pay 8hrs for holiday pay and that is not overtime. We also use quickbooks and you can delegate the time appropriatly. We also have a rule that the employee has to show up the "working day" before and the "working day" after the holiday to get paid for the holiday. This helps keep them from taking a four day weekend.

    We do this also. Some still take off and forfeit their holiday pay.

    depends on co. policy

    some pay anything over 8 a day is overtime.

    you could have 34 hrs for the week and have overtime.

    most of the time construction type work doesnt pay overtime,

    however, you may want to check with your local state laws,
