Payment when employee does not work on a public holiday
The employee is paid for the public holiday as if they had worked as normal on the day and is entitled to be paid their ‘relevant daily pay’ or ‘average daily pay’ (see the “Definitions” box). For most employees working a regular pattern of hours, the pay cycle continues unchanged.
An employee who does not normally work on the day in question and who does not work is not entitled to a payment for the day. For example, a part-time employee who never works on Friday has no entitlement to payment for Good Friday.
