Holiday pay sorted?

Working out what an employee gets paid for taking a day off on annual holidays will depend partly on what they have earned in the previous 12 months.

Find out more about how to calculate payment rates for holidays and leave at Employment New Zealand, or using Wolters Kluwer's New Zealand Workforce Manager.

Remember, Boxing Day and the second of January fall on a Saturday this year. An employee gets an alternative holiday for working on a public holiday that is an otherwise working day.

So, if you have an employee working on these days (who wouldn’t normally work on Saturday), their holiday entitlement is transferred to the following Monday. If your employee would normally work on Saturday, then they’ll get their holiday entitlements on Saturday (the calendar date of the public holiday).
