Set Up Public Holiday

This video will take you through:

  • Setting up Public Holidays
  • Public Holidays shown in payslips

**********************************************************

Before you produce the first pay slips, it is recommended you set up the public holiday records. These are created via the Public Holiday option from the Setup menu, and allow you to pre-set all the Public Holiday for the year (and further if required). Public Holidays may to be fixed to a specific work location, as defined in the Locations option of the HR menu. Having these, set up allows Sage WageEasy Payroll to automatically implement the public holiday requirements of the awards when producing the pay slips.

If employees work on a public holiday and it is treated the same as a normal day and no other special conditions occur, then you do not need to set this up.

If employees do not work on public holidays and are paid a normal day’s pay, you do not need to set this up.

If any other condition occurs, then you will need to setup the public holidays in Wage Easy and then set up the conditions for when employees work and when they don’t and what should happen. 

Hours for Public Holidays are set from Normal Times tab.

Please note, you need to set up public holidays in Wage Easy if you wish this system to work correctly. 

You now need to choose the payment conditions:

  • Time Worked Only will only pay the employee for any hours worked on the public holiday
