The majority of public holidays in Cambodia are based on Buddhist observances, as well as Cambodia’s freedom from the Khmer Rouge regime.

According to Cambodian labour laws, if a “sanctioned” public holiday falls on a Sunday, employees are allowed to take the following Monday as a paid holiday. Payment for public holidays are at the normal hourly wage. If an employee is requested to work on a sanctioned public holiday, he or she will receive the normal wage in addition to 100 percent. This rate is equivalent to double-time.
