43. Public holidays

43.1 Any day gazetted or proclaimed as a public holiday, at the location the staff member is working, will be taken on full pay, except that a casual staff member who is not required to work on such a day will not be entitled to payment for that day

43.2   In order to minimise disruption to teaching and other University business, the University may substitute for Family and Community Day public holiday a day off in lieu for specified teaching and teaching/student support areas, where such holiday falls in a teaching period. Such substituted day would be taken in conjunction with the Christmas closure. Reasonable notice of this substitution will be provided to students and staff.

43.3  No penalty rates will apply to staff working on gazetted or proclaimed public holiday substituted in accordance with this clause as long as the staff member is granted a day off in lieu.
