Payment for Employees for Time Off on Public Holidays

Payment for Absence on Public HolidaysWhat payment is required?

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.
