Does Workday formula pick up bank holidays?

I have formula

workday(today(),-1)

If a Bank Holiday is on a monday and i run a report on a Tuesday, will it pick up Monday or Friday data?

Thanks
Seamus

Workday skips Sats and Suns anyway - if you want it to skip holidays then list them somewhere, e.g. in H1:H10 and use

=workday(today(),-1,H$1:H$10)
