Default new years working

Hi,

this might be seen as another 'pointless post' and to be honest it is, because no one can really give me an answer haha!
but... me and my partner want to book flights to auckland for new year...
new years eve is a monday..hes going to be working in construction project management so has all bank hols off etc..does anyone reckon he will be working new years eve monday? or will it shut down that day given the following tues,weds are bank hols.

think we are just gonna book the flights as they are super cheap right now and take the risk. we want to fly on the sunday 30th and come back new years day.
just thought there might be some other construction project managers out there.

I guess you were right. Only the employer can answer that question. Each employer is different. I would not book a flight based on what you see on here.

I thought that.

Best check with the employer. They will know what shut down they will be having.

I would be 99.9999999% certain that almost everyone except emergency / essential services, hospitality and retail will be on leave on Monday 31st December. He will just have to take a days leave and I think most would expect him to have that day off anyway. I don't think anyone will miss him if he doesn't show up for work that day. LOL

Christmas / New Year mandatory annual shutdown for all our offices nationwide is from 21st December 2018 (half day) and return 7th Jan 2019. Personnel only need to book 4 days of annual leave (or other leave if available) for 27/28 Dec and 3/4 Jan as all the other days are public holidays.
Doesn't apply to me as I'm a shift worker so we're in the office all the way through.

As an aside & apologies to the OP for going is bit off kilter.
I am really hoping it will only be the 6 leave days that have to be compulsory taken this year & so just the straight two weeks. Often these past years it has leaked a bit around the edges.

Neither Monday 24th or 31st December are public holidays so will be six days of leave for most people
