Covid-19 leave subsidy and sick leave

Hi

I have staff off with Covid-19 and their applied for subsidy hasn't yet come through.  I can pay them via their sick leave but how do I reimburse the sick leave taken once the subsidy comes through?  eg putting the days sick back to what they would have been if the subsidy had been received in time for payroll run. Thanks

Re: Covid-19 leave subsidy and sick leave

Hi @Raewyn1

 

Thanks for your post. Did you still need assistance with this ? If you do, changes to the sick leave would need to be made manually in your Essentials payroll file. Our help article Managing your employees' leave has information on this. 

 

Do let me know how you go.

Re: Covid-19 leave subsidy and sick leave

Hi Raewyn,

 

I'm also having this problem and can't find good instructions on the page suggested by MYOB. Are you able to tell me how you sorted out this issue?

 

Thanks!

Re: Covid-19 leave subsidy and sick leave

Hi Kathryn

No guarantees I have done it correctly (and this is for New Zealand) :

 

Took the Subsidy amount and divided it by the hourly rate paid. This gave me the number of hours the subsidy covered which I then converted into days.  I then went into the sick leave and changed the opening balance of the sick leave by the amount of days.  I do suggest that you print the existing off first just in case.  

 

subsidy divided by hourly rate = xx hours.  divide this by the number of hours worked per day = number of sick days taken.    opening balance 6.83 days, reimbursement of days 1.83 = 8.66 new opening balance of sick leave.

 

hope this makes sense.

 

Make sure you write lots of notes just in case you have to go back - and make sure your employee/s know how you have worked it out.  The updated sick leave doesn't show on their payslips until the following pay period.
