If your payday falls on a bank holiday do you get paid before or after the holiday?

The reason I ask is that when I asked for advance notice when payday would be delayed, I was informed by the company president that it is COMMON PRACTICE for companies to pay AFTER the holiday. The first response, after, was me.

He also stated that MOST COMPANIES do this... so I'm curious. I have NEVER had it post after the holiday with any other company before and would like to see what others are experiencing.

Thanks!

I was paid on payday or BEFORE payday regardless of holidays, bank or otherwise. That was in the union contract. If the checks were late on payday or the checks were short the employer paid time and a half until you were made whole. And we were paid weekly.

I don't work for union, but I also get paid on payday or the day before if payday is a holiday.

Where I use to work, we got paid before a major holiday. I used to work in construction, so if their pay was after a major holiday, they would beat up the boss. Luckily, it never came to that level.
