Where compensatory leave is not permitted, a monetary compensation of 150% of the employee's remuneration must be provided.

An employee who is required to work on holidays is entitled to compensatory leave for the number of days worked under Article 81 of the Employment Law. He or she is also entitled to monetary compensation equal to 50% of the remuneration. Where compensatory leave is not permitted, a monetary compensation of 150% of the employee's remuneration must be provided.

The law does not specify how compensatory leave may be used. Given this, it is reasonable to assume that the compensatory days of leave can be agreed upon by both the employer and the employee.
