Armidale Cup: Should it be a holiday?

September 14, 2015

Council is keen to get the business community's view on whether the Armidale Cup - 14 March, 2016 - should be a 1/2 day public holiday.

In 2014 & 2015, the event was a Half Day Local Event Day - but the Armidale Jockey Club has applied for it to be a half day Public Holiday in 2016 - which means employees are entitled to be absent from work for the afternoon/or a penalty rates may be payable, depending on your releant awards.
