Know your rights: Work on a Public Holiday
With Brett Peters…
Work on a Public Holiday
67.1 An employee required to work on a Public Holiday which falls on Monday to Friday shift shall be paid at time and one half for all time worked on the Public Holiday. All time worked on a Public Holiday which falls on a Saturday shall be paid at the rate of double time.
67.2 In addition to the penalty rate prescribed in 67.1 above, an employee who works on a Public Holiday will also be entitled to a payment equivalent to the ordinary hours, which the employee actually works on the Public Holiday, up to a maximum of 7.6 hours (the “Additional Payment”). Employees who work less than 7.6 hours per day will be entitled to the Additional Payment on a pro rata basis.
