Thankyou Payroll help Getting StartedExplaining Annual Leave

Explaining Annual Leave

Each leave method is calculated differently in the system, one is based on days and the other on a percentage of gross earnings.  Changing the leave method in an employee profile will not convert one calculation to the other.  In these circumstances please contact our support team for advice

Permanent Employee

Works guaranteed hours each week, may or may not have a regular work pattern and has an ongoing expectation of employment

This employee is entitled to minimum 4 weeks leave each anniversary and is calculated in Thankyou Payroll by using the "rate set as per the holidays act" method.

What determines how many weeks (days) an employee is given each anniversary?

1. Select if employee has not set work pattern

2. Enter typically the number of days the employee works each week

In the below example the employee would be allocated 4 weeks of 5 days which would show in the Leave Liability table as "days allocated annual leave" 20.

 

1. Select if employee has a set work pattern, the work pattern will be entered in the standard pay  field "set default entries for standard pay row of timesheet".  If the work pattern changes it can be updated in the standard pay tab and will automatically update the "days in a typical week" and "hours in a typical week" field in the leave fields.

2. This will automatically calculate using the information entered in the standard pay field "set default entries for standard pay row of timesheet.

In the below example the employee would be allocated 4 weeks of 5 days which would show in the Leave Liability table as "days allocated annual leave" 20.

Casual Employee

Has no guaranteed hours, no regular work pattern and has no ongoing expectation of employment.

This employee is entitled to leave but is calculated differently from a permanent employee.  Their leave is calculated in Thankyou Payroll using the "a % of their gross earnings (temp and irregular scenerio)" method.

What determines how their leave is managed?

1. Select this option for a casual employee

2. Select this option if their contract states they will be paid annual leave into each pay

3. Select this option if their contract states they will be paid annual leave at the end of their fixed term contract.
