Public holidays

Public holidays have particular implications for employment and shop trading hours. However if workers work on a public holiday they should be given equivalent time off on another working day. Though shops can transact business during these days, there are special trading restrictions on Christmas day, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday and before 1pm on ANZAC day.

In some provinces there are special exemptions given by the city or district council to the shops to transact business during Christmas day and on Good Friday. This is done to help the local tourists as many would not know for what reason the shops would be closed on these days. There are generally two types of holidays statutory holidays and provincial holidays. Statutory holidays are those that are legislated by law, while provincial holidays are those which commemorate the founding of a province or particular settlement. The general holidays or the statutory holidays that everyone is entitled to are New Years Day, the day after New Year’s Day, Waitangi day, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Easter Monday, ANZAC day, Queen’s Birthday, Christmas day, Boxing Day, and Labor Day. Provincial holidays are generally given to commemorate the founding of a particular region; each province in New Zealand has a special day reserved which is declared as a holiday.
