Employer obligations

Some of your employees might work on ANZAC Day public holiday, or take the paid day off. This will impact how you enter their timesheets. Find out how to enter public holidays on employee timesheets.

If your employee works on a public holiday, you are required to pay them ‘time and a half’ or 1.5 times their standard rate for this day. If the public holiday is an otherwise working day for this employee, you’ll also need to allocate a full day of alternative leave to their leave balance.
