Anzac Day 2015 – How does Mondayising affect me?

If your business is normally Monday to Friday then ANZAC Day affects you on Monday 27th, which should be treated as a public holiday for all staff.

For other businesses, if an employee normally works (or would normally have been rostered to work) on the Saturday 25th, the Saturday is their public holiday.  Other employees, however, would be treated as if the public holiday falls on Monday.  And you cannot manipulate things by changing rosters – their entitlement will be determined by their usual roster pattern.

This means that for businesses that normally are open on Saturdays, on the Monday some staff will have a public holiday while others will not.  Confusing? – I’m afraid so, (but, for those companies that don’t close for Christmas, it is the same as Christmas/New Year).

To complicate matters it will be the Saturday that is affected by trading restrictions - not the Monday.

Any questions give us a ring.
