What are public holidays in easyemployer

Public holidays are special days that will indicate a day off or penalty rates for employees.

Why is this important

Roster shifts should only be assigned on public holidays if the employee is actually working that day.  For permanent employees not working on the public holiday, easyemployer will calculate the hours for that day based on the employees pay conditions (standard hours and days).

See: setting standard days and minimum hours

To change what public holidays your organisation observes, please see the guide: Configuring observed public holidays
