Families often spend time away during the Easter holidays, so check your state’s school holiday dates and remember:
- If you roster staff on during public holidays you may be required to pay them penalty rates.
- Create rosters in advance and check if employees intend to take leave; to avoid being short staffed during the busy period.
- Advise both your employees and your customers if your business hours will change over Easter.
- If you will be unavailable during the holiday period, let your staff know who to report to and when you will be back.
If you have any queries regarding staff pay rates over Easter, contact a Workplace Partner on 1300 766 380.
