All career employees are paid on the first day of each month. What happens when the first of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday?
Payday is always the first day of each month for career employees. If the first falls on Saturday, Sunday, or a public holiday, then payday will be the Friday before the first of the month or the day before the public holiday. An exception to this rule is January 1. PayDay will be the first scheduled work day after the holiday.
