Please note:

According to the Employment Ordinance, when either Lunar New Year’s Day, the second day of the Lunar New Year or the third day of the Lunar New Year falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of the Lunar New Year is designated as a statutory holiday in substitution; and in the event that the day following the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival falls on a Sunday, the day thereafter (i.e. the 17th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar) is designated as a statutory holiday in substitution. As the second day of Lunar New Year of 2017 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year will be designated as a statutory holiday.

All employees are entitled to the above statutory holidays. If the statutory holiday falls on a rest day, a holiday should be granted on the day following the rest day which is not a statutory holiday or an alternative holiday or a substituted holiday or a rest day. An employee having been employed under a continuous contract for not less than 3 months is entitled to the holiday pay which is equivalent to the daily average wages earned by the employee in the 12-month period preceding the holiday.

Reference example:
An employee is granted rest days on Sundays. As both the first day of January (1 January) and National Day (1 October) fall on Sundays, the employer should grant a holiday on the next day (i.e. 2 January and 2 October), but these two days should not be a statutory holiday or an alternative holiday or a substituted holiday or a rest day.
