Annual Leave Entitlement Methods in BrightPay

The following Annual Leave Entitlement Methods are available in BrightPay:

 

  • set number of annual leave days

  • accrued by number of working days

  • accrued by number of hours worked (set hours per day, excluding overtime)

  • accrued by number of hours worked (set hours per day, including overtime)

  • accrued by number of hours worked (irregular hours, excluding overtime)

  • accrued by number of hours worked (irregular hours, including overtime)


An employee's annual leave entitlement method can be set within the Employment section of their employee record:


 

Set number of annual leave days per year

 

  • This method allows an employee a set number of  annual leave days without any recognition of time worked
  • The total number of days allowed by the employer for the annual leave year is entered when setting up the employee record - this can be amended at any time
  • The employee calendar will show a full entitlement to the set number of days (for example 28 days) from the start of the annual leave year without pro-rata, any dependence on time worked and regardless of working days

 



 

Accrued by number of working days

 

  • This method is based on the number of days worked per week by the employee
  • Current statutory holiday entitlement is used as the basis of the leave calculation. For example, an employee works 3 days a week. Their leave is calculated by multiplying 3 by 5.6, which equates to an entitlement of 16.8 days of annual paid leave

 

Accrued by number of hours worked (set hours per day, excluding overtime)

 

  • This method will accrue annual leave entitlement by applying 12.07% to hours worked (excluding hours marked as overtime hours)
  • The employee's pay must be entered by the hour
  • The number of hours worked per pay period (excluding overtime hours) is used as the basis of the leave calculation. 
  • The employee’s record must show the correct typical hours worked per day in order to convert the accrued hourly entitlement into the equivalent daily leave entitlement
