PUBLIC HOLIDAYS FOR FULL-TIMERS AND PART-TIMERS
- Where your store does open or does not open for trade on a public holiday, and you would have been rostered to work, you are entitled to the day off without loss of ordinary pay for hours normally rostered to work.
- Where a store opens, permanent and casual employees who volunteer to work and are chosen to work receive the relevant public holiday rate of pay for hours worked.
- Where a store remains closed, permanent employees rostered on receive the day off without loss of ordinary pay for the hours rostered.
- The minimum engagement on a public holiday is three hours or payment for three hours.
Because of the strong lobbying by the SDA, Easter Sunday has been legislated as a public holiday throughout Queensland.
As such, Easter Sunday is treated just like any other public holiday on the calendar.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. What happens if a Public Holiday falls in my Holidays?
A. Don’t worry. If a public hoiday falls during a period of annual leave, your annual leave will not be deducted for that public holiday.
Q. Do I have to work on a public holiday?
A. No, all work on a public holiday for ALL employees is voluntary. I repeat, VOLUNTARY!
Q. Do roster changes affect my entitlement to public holidays?
A. No, your roster cannot be changed to avoid payment of penalties, loadings or other benefits – e.g. Easter Saturday. Should this occur you are still entitled to the benefit. If you are unsure of how this entitlement may affect you, please contact your Shop Steward or Union Organiser at the Union Office.
