Who gets what: How to work out payment for Public Holidays.
Once again, as we ease into Easter the age-old question “what do I pay my staff for the public holidays” will come up. This is especially true at this time of year when we have Easter and ANZAC day falling so close together and then these are quickly followed by Queens Birthday in June.
The bottom line is that employees get a paid day off on a public holiday if it’s a day they would have normally worked on. If they work on that public holiday they’re paid time and a half and get an alternative day off.
