Extra pay type options when Approving Shifts on Public Holiday setting (for permanent staff)

By default, when approving shifts on a public holiday for permanent employees an option will appear to select how the employee should be paid:

  • Default: Public holiday rates will apply as per the award interpretation.
  • Treat As Normal Day: The day will not be treated as a public holiday. Standard rates will apply.

There is a setting that can be turned on to display additional award interpretation options if required.

These are:

  • Default: Public holiday rates will apply as per the award interpretation.
  • Force public holiday entire shift: The shift will be paid as a public holiday regardless of the award interpretation.
  • Treat as normal day: The day will not be treated as a public holiday, standard rules will apply.
  • Pay Base Rate: The employee's normal ordinary rate will be used and no overtime and shift loadings will be applied.
