Working a public holiday? You’re entitled to “time and a half” pay for all hours worked.

What’s “time and a half”?
➡️ Basically it means you get 50% more than your usual pay, for the time you worked on a public holiday
➡️ e.g., if you worked 6 hours, you should get paid as if you worked 9
➡️ you are legally entitled to time and half pay if you work a public holiday, like Waitangi Day
➡️ you should be able to find more details on holidays and time and half in your employment agreement
