Anzac Day 2021 public holiday employment entitlements

Under the Western Australia Public and Bank Holidays Act 1972, Anzac Day takes place on 25 April, but when that day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the next following Monday is also a public holiday.

In 2021, Anzac Day falls on Sunday 25 April. Subsequently, Sunday 25 April and Monday 26 April are both public holidays in Western Australia. However, employees in the state industrial relations system will generally only be entitled to public holiday entitlements for one of these days, depending on award coverage.

If you are covered by the state industrial relations system, the Anzac Day 2021 public holiday (add link) page contains information on employment entitlements for:

  • award free employers and employees
  • Shop and Warehouse (Wholesale and Retail Establishments) Award
  • Restaurant, Tearoom and Catering Workers Award
  • Hairdressers Award.
