Mondayised Public Holidays

Follow

Mondayisation means that if qualifying public holidays fall on a Saturday or Sunday:

  • for employees who would not otherwise work on that Saturday or Sunday, the public holiday must be treated as falling on the following Monday
  • for employees who would otherwise work on that Saturday or Sunday, the public holiday must be treated as falling on that day

To determine if a public holiday is an Otherwise Working Day for an employee, please see this article.

 

Qualifying public holidays are:

  • Waitangi Day
  • ANZAC Day
  • Christmas Day
  • Boxing Day
  • New Year's Day
  • Day After New Year's Day

For more information please refer the MBIE website

There is also a comprehensive guide on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment website

To check which employees have had their public holiday mondayised, run the Pay Leave Report after creating the pay but before finalising it.  The treatment of mondayised public holidays and otherwise working days are listed on the last page of this report.
