No more day off if public holiday falls on Sunday?

In this article, I would like to talk about the third amendment to the Labor Law, in particular with respect to revision of Article 162 regarding public holiday.

I posted a topic (with link: Cambodia: Another day off if public holiday falls on Sunday) in accordance with Article 162 of the Labor Law. Under this Article 162, if public holiday falls on Sunday, the worker will have another day off on the following day.

Article 162 (OLD) of the Labor Law reads:

In the event that the holiday is on a Sunday, the worker will be given another day off.

Holidays are not a reason to deduct monthly, quarterly or weekly wages.

The third amendment to the Labor Law dated 05 October 2021 has revised the first sentence of above rule. Under the Article 162 (NEW), there is no specific rule saying that there will be another day off on the following day if public holiday falls on Sunday.

Article 162 (NEW) of the Labor Law reads:

Working on paid holidays must be subject to inspection by the Labor Inspector. Procedures for working on paid holidays shall be determined by a Prakas of the Minister in charge of Labor.

Holidays are not a reason to deduct monthly, quarterly or weekly wages.

According to the revised Article 162 above, it is more likely that there is no day off on the following day when public holiday falls on Sunday.
