Qualifying for public holiday entitlements


“Generally, employees qualify for the public holiday entitlement unless they:
  • Fail without reasonable cause to work all of their last regularly scheduled day of work before the public holiday or all of their first regularly scheduled day of work after the public holiday (this is called the “Last and First Rule”)
or
  • Fail without reasonable cause to work their entire shift on the public holiday if they agreed to or were required to work that day.
Note: Most employees who fail to qualify for the public holiday entitlement are still entitled to be paid premium pay for every hour they work on the holiday.”
