When do I have to pay Holiday Pay?

Based on the Nova Scotia Labour Standards employers are required to pay their employees based on the 5 statutory holidays should they qualify: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Canada Day, Labour Day, and Christmas Day.  Remembrance Day has its own separate laws.  The code states that for an employee to qualify for holiday pay they must  (1) have been employed for the previous 30 days, (2) be entitled to receive pay for at least 15 of the 30 calendar days before the holiday and (3) have worked on his/her last scheduled shift or day before the holiday and on the first scheduled shift or day after the holiday.
