What is payroll holiday configuration

Public holiday timesheet shifts will be automatically generated for relevant employees based on their standard daily hours. For most organisations, this will only affect permanent employees (part time and full time employees) as casual employees are not usually entitled to a non-worked public holiday. 

Why is this important

This type of public holiday shift is often referred to as the Public holiday non worked shift (e.g. the standard day for an employee). If an employee worked a public holiday this is referred to as the Public holiday worked shift. Correctly setting up an employee is important to ensure they are paid what they have earned.
