Public holiday payment arrangements for Parental Leave Pay

23 February 2021

If your employees’ Parental Leave Pay is due during the Easter holidays, we may pay the funds early.

We won't delay payments because of the public holidays, but we may pay you earlier than normal.

When we make an early payment, we pay before, but as close to, the normal payment day as possible. It’s a normal payment, just paid early.

This only changes during the holiday period, then we go back to regular payment dates.

We’re closed on Good Friday 2 April and Easter Monday 5 April 2021.

To find out what date we make payments during the holiday period, check the following table:
