ANZAC Day 2015 “Mondayised”

New Holidays Act legislation in New Zealand means for the first time ANZAC Day is being Mondayised. This year ANZAC Day falls on a Saturday which is still the day ANZAC celebrations are held. However, ANZAC Day will also be observed with a public holiday on Monday 27 April 2015.

What does this mean for employers and public holiday entitlements?

Employees are entitled to one public holiday day only as follows:

• For employees that would not normally work on Saturday, ANZAC Day is treated as falling on the following Monday
• For employees who usually work on Saturday, the public holiday must be treated as falling on the Saturday.

If you require your employees to work on the day that is their specified public holiday as above, they are entitled to at least time and a half pay and a whole day's alternative holiday (day in lieu) at a later date.

If you're unsure of the payroll impact of these changes, please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll advise based on your particular situation.
