What is a Mondayised holiday?

For most people, the Mondayised holiday is relatively easy to understand. When a public holiday falls on a weekend, if you normally work that day it is treated as your public holiday as you would expect. If you don’t work on weekends then the following Monday becomes your holiday. Only certain public holidays are eligible to be Mondayised*.  


What is a Tuesdayised holiday?

If two public holidays occur on the same weekend then the Saturday public holiday will be Mondayised and the Sunday public holiday will be Tuesdayised.
