Policy dictates they pay holiday pay at same rate as overtime but will reduce the hours of paid holiday time from overtime requirements. If you work any overtime on a paid holiday pay period you will be very disappointed on pay day. If you work 48 hours on a non holiday pay period and work the same 48 hours on a holiday pay period your pay will be the same. The policy is legal, not very moral or ethical, but if your reading here at least you know before working for them, and not on the day you get paid.

If your Union at G4S (Chicago Region) you get double time for all holidays as well as Christmas and New Years eve's. Otherwise regular accounts get time and one half and only if the clients are open or want security there.

If you are in a salaried position you don't get time in a half. You get a floating holiday.

First you must understand what constitutes time and a half for G4S. If you work all of your hours at one site then you will be paid time and a half for that work site that is similar to the national standard of time and a half. Example: 10$/HR = regular pay. Time and a half = 15$

If you work at separate sites then your time and a half is an average of all the sites.
Site A pays 10$ per hour
Site B pays 15$ per hour
Site C pays 12$ per hour.

Time and a half = Average of the three. (10 + 15 + 12) / 3 = 12.33 per hour.
