Wow, I did not know that (getting paid if a Public holiday falls within your owed leave entitlement and you would have normally worked it).

I don't work Stats anyway, but I wonder how many people have been fleeced on this one? I would say that a huge percentage of both employers and employees are not aware of this.

John2010:
YadaMe:
... the example shows someone finishing before labour day, but with holiday pay they get paid for labour day.



Again, at the risk of labouring (Wink) the point they do not get paid for Labour Day if they do not normally work on Mondays e.g. if they normally work Tuesdays to Saturdays. Same applies for other public holidays.

You are of course correct. You only get paid a Public Holiday if its a day you would have normally worked.

Just to confuse matters further employees can now transfer Public holidays from one day to another. I'm thinking of transferring 6 February to 22 February as that date has more significance for me.

Another issue that sometimes appears when people work out their own holiday pay or whatever, especially if they are on an annual salary, is they are convinced that there are 52 weeks in the year when there are, of course, more (and so more than 26 fortnights).

So they think they are being diddled when they divide their salary, for example, by 52 to determine what they should get for a week of holiday pay.
