Substantive Labour Code 1950; Section 179 (Weekly Rest Days)

Workers are entitled to 24 consecutive hours of rest per week. Labour Law requires that weekly rest day, in principle, should be Sunday for all the employees but the employer and the worker may agree to fix the Saturday as the weekly rest day. If a worker has to work on weekly holiday, he/she is entitled to the wages at a premium rate of 175% of the normal wage rate.
