Labour Day - Monday 26th October 2020

15 October 2020

This year Labour Day falls on Monday 26th October (fourth Monday in October). Labour Day is always observed on the day it falls and is not subject to 'mondayisation', calculating employee entitlements for labour day should be simple and can be done with the click of a button in most payroll systems.

As with all public holidays you first need to establish if the day the public holiday falls would otherwise be a working day for the employee. In most cases it’s easy to work out whether or not an employee would have normally worked on the day in question (known as an otherwise working day) because the working pattern or roster is constant and the employer and employee can agree about whether the employee would otherwise have worked that day.

Choosing a Sound System

8 October 2020

I have recently had a few enquiries from clubs looking to make changes to their sound system, so thought I would put together a quick spiel explaining some of the things to consider.
