Payment for work done on a public holiday

The Ministry would like to remind all employers that under the Employment Act, an employee who is required to work on a public holiday is entitled to an extra day's salary at the basic rate of pay, in addition to the gross rate of pay for that holiday. The employer and employee may mutually agree to substitute a public holiday for any other day. Employers may also grant time-off-in-lieu to an employee in a managerial or executive position who is required to work on a public holiday, comprising such number of hours as mutually agreed.
