The Statutory Holidays Amendment Bill 2010 has been passed by both houses of the Parliament of Australia's State of Tasmania.

The aforementioned bill amends the current Statutory Holidays Act 2000 and clarifies how Christmas day is to be treated for award/agreement pay rates and conditions when it falls on a weekend.

It also confirms (18-Nov-2010) that Anzac Day is to be observed on April 25th, with no additional public holiday when it falls on a weekend. Note that there are still draft copies of the legislation, online, which still contain the recently-rejected original paragraph (c) of the "Section 4 amended (Statutory holidays)" section.

It also clarifies the observance of Easter Tuesday, which under the new bill would be mainly observed by public servants ("member of a class of persons referred to in section 6 of the Industrial Relations (Commonwealth Powers) Act 2009").

The Statutory Holidays Amendment Bill 2010 is expected to receive Royal assent on Friday, December 3, 2010.
