Public holiday payment arrangements for Parental Leave Pay
13 November 2020
If your employees’ Parental Leave Pay is due over the holidays, we may pay the funds early.
We won't delay payments because of a public holiday, but we may pay you earlier than normal. An early payment is the normal payment, just paid early.
Where we make an early payment, we pay before, but as close to, your normal payment day as possible.
Keep in mind, this only changes during the holiday period. We then go back to the normal payment delivery date in early 2021.
To find out what date we make payments during the holiday period, you can check the payment dates in the following table.
|Normal payment date||Revised payment date||Next normal payment date|
|Thursday 24 December 2020||Wednesday 23 December 2020||Thursday 7 January 2021|
|Friday 25 December 2020||Thursday 24 December 2020||Friday 8 January 2021|
|Monday 28 December 2020||Thursday 24 December 2020||Monday 11 January 2021|
|Tuesday 29 December 2020||Tuesday 29 December 2020||Tuesday 12 January 2021|
|Wednesday 30 December 2020||Tuesday 29 December 2020||Wednesday 13 January 2021|
|Thursday 31 December 2020||Wednesday 30 December 2020||Thursday 14 January 2021|
|Friday 1 January 2021||Wednesday 30 December 2020||Friday 15 January 2021|
If your business shuts down over the holiday period, consider the impact on your employee. If the time between payment dates will be longer than usual, they’ll need to budget for this. You may need to discuss this with them.
