Managing Public Holidays

All key public holidays are stored in your platform which is automatically populated with the Australian Governments holidays.

Note: Christmas Eve 2019 and New Years Eve 2019 are automatically included for all platforms in QLD, SA & NT.

It is important that you check and customise the public holidays in your platform where applicable to align with your business and payroll processes e.g. adding regional public holidays such as Show Days.

Regional holidays will need to be applied and may not be listed in your key public holidays.

Public Holiday rates will automatically flow through to the relevant employee's pay.

View existing public holidays set up:

1. Navigate to the full menu by selecting the hamburger icon.
