Queen's Birthday

Published 10 May 2016

This year Queen’s Birthday Holiday will be observed on Monday June 6th.

An Employee who ‘normally’ works on Monday, but is not required to work on the Public Holiday, will be paid for the day at either the ‘relevant daily rate’ (what they would have received if they had worked the day in question).

If the Employee is required to work, they will receive ‘time and a half’ of either the Employee’s relevant daily pay or average daily pay (minus penal rates), for the hours worked.  If the Monday is a ‘normal’ day of work, the Employee will receive one alternative holiday, to be taken later.

Alternative holidays and relevant daily rate calculations are discussed in depth in our eBook Annual Holidays & Leave which members can download from the Dashboard Library on Non-members can choose to purchase from here:
