What are the Easter 2019 Public Holidays?

Courtesy of the Fair Work Ombudsman, below is a list of public holidays over Easter 2019 holiday season according to each state. Employers should check their relevant Award or Agreement to understand their obligations in terms of employee entitlements for Easter.

Remember, if you have an employee who is working in a different state for the public holidays over Easter, their entitlements are based on where they usually work (their work base) rather than the location they were working.
