Award | Public holiday configuration


1) What is a public holiday region?

This feature is used to ensure public holidays are paid correctly to users that work across multiple sites that have different public holidays available. In this case an additional feature can be activated in the Easy Employer account to apply public holidays at the site in which a user's home role is set. This feature allows for flexibility when handling public holidays within Easy Employer. The information will be reflected in the payroll report, timesheets and roster cost projections. This can assist with accurately managing costs within the organisation and assist managers to better cater to their rostering needs.
