Public holidays in the Australian Capital Territory are governed by the Holidays Act 1958 (last amended in 2014). If a public holiday falls on a weekend, the following workday is observed as a paid holiday. If a public holiday falls during an employee’s scheduled annual leave, extra days are awarded.
The statute pertaining to labour laws in the Australian Capital Territory is called the Workplace Relations Act 1996. Awards programs, certified employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements outline terms and conditions of employment including overtime compensation and entitlement to paid holidays and annual leave. Normal working hours consist of 38 hours per week.
