What rate of pay an employee receives when they are absent because of a public holiday can cause confusion. This is especially so when the public holiday falls on a weekend.
An employee not normally rostered to work on a particular day including weekends, does not receive any payment for their absence on that day. However, full and part time employees normally rostered to work on on a particular day that a public holiday is on, have an entitlement to payment at their base rate of pay.
For details, please see the NANA Conditions of Employment Guide.
