Pay an employee for working a public holiday
If an employee works on a public holiday, you'll need to add a time and a half pay item to their payslip during a pay run so that they're paid correctly.
Before you start
Before you pay an employee for working a public holiday, make sure you've:
Set up a time and a half earnings type for your organisation
- Assigned a holiday group to the employee so that the public holidays appear in their payslips
Add time and a half earnings to an employee
- In a pay run for the period that includes the public holiday worked, click + Add New Earnings and click the time and a half pay item.
- Enter the number of hours that the employee worked for time and a half.
Under Earnings, zero out the hours for the public holiday that the employee worked.
Under Leave Accruals in the Alternative Holidays line, add the standard number of hours for a day (the hours that the employee accrued for working the public holiday).
- Click Save & Close.
- Process the pay run.
