Leave accruing when on Unpaid leave

Dear Support Staff,

 

During January some of our staff members were on unpaid annual leave for part of the month.

Eg. 4 days unpaid leave, but worked and was paid for the remaining 19 days  in January '24. 

The Act2009 mentions that they don't accrue leave when on unpaid leave. 

Please let me know if they should get a pro-rata accrued leave for the 19 days they worked.

MYOB calculates the full entitlement which is not correct.

Please advice

Thank you

Shanthi

    Hi SDesilva

     

    Thanks for your post, and welcome to the Community Forum. I hope you find plenty of helpful information.

     

    Apologies for the late response. I understand your concern about the accrual of leave for your staff members who took unpaid leave. According to Act 2009, employees do not accrue leave when on unpaid leave. This means that if an employee takes unpaid leave, they should not accrue leave for those days. However, for the days they worked, they should accrue leave on a pro-rata basis. If an employee worked for 19 days in a month, they should accrue leave for those 19 days.

     

    In this case, we recommend creating separate leave categories for the employee's unpaid leave and then exempting the base leave categories from this. This will stop calculation leave when your employee goes on unpaid leave.

     

    Let me know if you still require further assistance with this.

     

     

    Kind regards,

    Shella

  • When I try and add a new Unpaid Leave Hourly payroll category and then exempt that category from leave accruals I get the attached error message
