Matariki public holiday reminder

Posted on 04 May 2022 / Employment

The winter may be almost upon us, but we’d like to remind you that you now have two public holidays to look forward to in the month of June. Matariki – the Māori new year – will be celebrated for the first time on Friday 24 June.

This will be a time for remembrance, celebrating the present, and looking to the future. The first Monday in June, this year being 6 June, is Queen’s Birthday weekend.

It is also time to review your rights and obligations during public holidays under the Holiday Act.
