Holiday Pay for an employee who has been off on ACC

I am wondering how MYOB payroll is calculating holiday pay for an employee who has been off work for months, then comes back to work and takes holidays.

If an employee has been off for months on ACC, surely he is not entitled to full Holiday Pay at the full weeks pay rate?

For example if an employee commenced on 1/9/18, worked for 1 month then had the next 11 months off on ACC due to a work accident, MYOB seems to calculate a full entitlement of 160 hours as at 1/9/19. So if he takes 4 weeks holiday on October he gets the full 160 hours at full pay.

Surely this can't be right?

What is the correct way of dealing with this please.

Hi @Stucat 


Typically on an employee's contract they will entitled to 4 weeks leave at their anniversary date, which is how the system will work. As yours is an unusual situation I recommend contacting to clarify the employee entitlement.


I'll tag @jenniek also as she may be able to offer more help.


Please let me know if you need further help.
