In the Northern Territory, public holidays are determined by statutes, employment agreements and the newly-enacted Australian awards program. Workers in the Northern Territory are entitled to 11 paid holidays per year.
If a public holiday falls on a weekend, a replacement or substitute holiday is granted on the first working day of the following week, usually a Monday, If an employee is required to work on a public holiday, compensation is paid at a rate equal to two and one-half times the normal salary. This is referred to as a “penalty rate.” In the event a public holiday falls during a worker’s designated annual leave, replacement days are credited.
