Permanent part time employee 20hr week



I am struggling to find a simple answer.

Have employed a permanent part time person, 20hrs per week on hourly rate.  But first pay week the did 32 hours. Just paid 32 hrs at hourly rate.


BUT I am needing to set up annual leave accrual and sick leave accrual and I am so confused.


ANNUAL LEAVE as per googling it is 4 weeks per annual and PERSONAL/CARER LEAVE is 10 days per annum.


If I leave the annual leave % as 7.6923 it works out an accrual figure at 32 hours, can i set it as fixed % of 1.538hrs per week  x 52 wks = 79.98 hrs per year annual leave (based on 20hours) - is this ok?


and what would be the best for sick leave?


Thanks for any help.  My brain is fried today in trying to find out 1 simple way to fix this.

Hi @Tasqua 


Generally speaking  if the employee is paid on an hourly basis your leave entitlements would be a percentage of gross hours, which worked out to be 4 weeks of leave, or whatever their contract specifies. By setting this up as a percentage of gross hours it will take into account if they work more or fewer hours in a week and adjust their entitlement accordingly.


If you were unsure as to how to work out the percentage or your obligations around leave for your employees, I’d recommend speaking with FairWork. They wont be able to tell you how to set this up inside your software but they will be able to run you through the correct figures that you should be giving your employees
