Public Holiday Rules

Public Holiday payments can be added to payroll automatically based on a List of Australian Public Holidays


Menu > Payroll > Payruns > Payslip of desired week

List of Public Holidays

Microkeeper maintains a full list of public holidays for all states in Australia.

Review this list by visiting the List of Australian public holidays page.

Adding a public holiday payment for staff that did not work 

Review the guide Leave and Public Holidays for unworked public holidays.

Adding payments for Public Holidays that have been worked

Before an employee can be paid for working a public holiday we need to create a Public Holiday Rule that will comply with the award for your industry.

The rules you create here will be applied to shifts worked on dates listed in Microkeepers List of Public Holidays.

Select the Group or Individual Employee the Rule and status the rule applies to.

The multiplier will need to be set to the relevant award for your industry. Eg. 2.5

You then have a choice to add or skip dates. For example; in Geelong, the Geelong Cup is celebrated as a Public Holiday instead of Melbourne Cup. Add extra date 22/10/2019 and add skip date 03/11/2019.

Any dates added or missed will need to be amended each year. Click add public holiday rule.
