Fair Work Australia have released the official list of Public Holidays for each of the States for 2018.
Public Holidays may vary depending on the state or territory you are in, and there are also local holidays that may need to be taken into consideration for regional locations (eg: local show days)
It is important to understand your staff entitlements on public holidays, what they are and are not paid for, specific shift loadings, or overtime penalties for working on these days, and even unpaid leave taken, where public holidays fall within the period of leave that has been taken.
Not sure how this applies to you and your business? Contact us on 07 3879 2090 or via our contact form to see how we can assist.
