Queensland to Have a New Public Holiday On Christmas Eve

December 5 2019

By Nicholas Hartman

 The Queensland government have announced a part-day public holiday on Christmas Eve, 24 December (from 6pm-midnight). This public holiday will commence from 2019 onwards.

What’s Changed?

Businesses in Queensland must ensure that they apply the correct rates to any employees who are working after 6.00pm on 24 December.

If you have employees on salaries or loaded hourly rates, you should review the current arrangements to ensure that the salary is sufficient to incorporate any additional costs.
