Planning for public holidays in 2009

National Women's Day is the only public holiday that falls on a Sunday. In terms of the Public Holidays Act, Monday 10 August becomes an additional public holiday. Employers must consider the effect these two public holidays will have on working arrangements and shifts, especially where collective agreements are concerned.
