NO PREMIUM PAY FOR CHRISTMAS DAY Q. I'm a waitress and find I'm scheduled to work Chistmas Day. T f that isn't bad enough I'm only sjoing to get paid straight time. Isn't there a state law that a person who works on a legal holiday must be paid time and a half? A. There is no state or federal law that requires premium pay for working on a holiday—unless working on a holiday means working more than 40 hours in one week. Then under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, an employer might have to pay an employee time and a half for overtime. The overtime provision of the act does not apply to restaurant, hotel, motel, or food service employees, however. —Illinois State Bar Association TV Review ^ Apollo 8 m Story Well Told On TV jriage ot Julie Nixon to David •Eisenhower.
