Holiday not compulsary on 7/7

THE state government will leave it to the private sector to decide if they want to recognise July 7 as a public holiday as it is not compulsory for them to do so, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

He said only four public holidays — National Day, Labour Day, the Yang di-Pertua Negri’s official birthday and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s official birthday — were mandated by law to be compulsory in Penang.

The rest are left to the respective employers to decide, including the new state public holiday on July 7 which Penang has declared as Heritage Day in commemorating the anniversary of the inscription of George Town as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2008, he said.

“The minimum number of public holidays (in the private sector), is 10 days in a year,” he said after presenting appreciation medals and cash rewards to 47 Penang Municipal Council workers yesterday for their role in maintaining cleanliness in the state. holiday on my special day :(
