Anzac Day

Published 09 Apr 2016

Anzac Day is upon us this month - 25th April. After the Holidays Amendment Act 2013 ANZAC Day (and Waitangi Day) is "Mondayised" however it just happens to be a Monday this year anyway.

Restricted trading hours remain observed until 1pm on Anzac Day regardless of the Mondayisation of the Public Holiday.

To avoid confusion; all Employees are entitled to the Public Holiday. Full-time, part-time, casual and fixed term Employees all have the same entitlements to take the holiday, although not all will be entitled to be paid.

For more information on Public Holidays please see our recently updated eBook on Annual Holidays and Leave. For Employers Support Package members this is available for download in the Library section of the Employers Toolbox, or non-members can purchase it here.
