ACC and Public Holidays PDF Print E-mail



Can you tell me if a person who is on non work related ACC (2nd week onwards) and is rostered to work on a public holiday, do they get a public holiday payment or nothing at all. 

This question is in relation to  Waitangi Day where I have an employee who has been on ACC for a few weeks now but would normally have been rostered on to work that day.  I know the rule is if they take leave of any kind they are paid a public holiday and don’t lose any leave credits but I am not sure what happens in the case of ACC.


My inclination would be they would not be paid anything but I would appreciate confirmation of this.  Would the same be the case if it is a work related injury?




You are right they should not be paid for this while being covered by ACC for both non and work related injuries.
