Calculation of Sick Leave and Public Holidays

Can someone please tell me if I can set up employee sick leave and public holidays to automatically average out when I use these codes in a pay run.  As it the employers obligation to average this out, I would have thought there was some way to get the system to do this?

 

This happens by default with annual leave but so far I have been manually calculating the rate for sick leave and public holidays which is really time consnfusing and open to error

 

Thanks

Re: Calculation of Sick Leave and Public Holidays

Hi @karenham

There is a way to get MYOB to calculate this for you, however it must be done every time and for each employee.

Here is the link to the support note that shows you how to do this.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jennie

 

I will have a go at this in our next payrun but it seems a very manual system.  I dont see why it cant automatically calcuate as the annual leave option does?

Re: Calculation of Sick Leave and Public Holidays

Hi @karenham

 

The Annual leave rate calculations are done on the ordinary weekly pay or average weekly earnings whichever one is higher.  Whereas Sick leave rate is calculated based on relevant daily pay. As these can be different calculations it does mean that it can calculate different rates depending on the employee's previous history and pays. 

The option in Payroll to use Average Daily Pay based on 52 weeks Gross earnings is actually used in situations where it is not possible or practical to calculate the relevant daily pay  or the employee has varied amounts of hours. It should only be used in those situations and therefore Payroll by deafult doesn't have that option ticked. If you do require Payroll to calculate it based on the Average Daily Pay based on 52 weeks Gross earnings then you would need to tick that option in the Leave button for processing those pays.

Kind regards,
Steven
