Multi-Country Public Holiday


Multi-Country Public Holiday  allows you to assign different Public Holidays to each of your staff, especially if you manage staff from different countries. Taking it one step further, for countries with multiple states, this feature allows you to configure the PH on a state level and assign different state Public Holidays to different employees as required. This is now available for use and configuration on the account
