(b) A classified employee required to work on any legal holiday shall be paid at a rate of one and one-half times the employee's hourly wage rate.
(c) A full-time classified employee required to work in excess of a normal working day during any week containing a legal holiday shall be paid for the additional hours or fraction of the additional hours at a rate of one and one-half times the employee's hourly wage rate.
