Holiday Pay

A few of my employees have holiday pay retes higher than normal working days. Is this an error or is there some reason for this?

Re: Holiday Pay

Hi @Linesman

This is probably correct -as annual leave, sick leave, public hols and bereavement leave are required to be paid at the average of the previous 12 months earnings - when the leave happens. MYOB Payroll calculates this average automatically for annual leave - and it can change if your staff work overtime or get extra money such as a bonus, commission etc. If you have the normal hours per week too low - then the rate will be much higher than their normal rate of pay.
