Annual Leave Loading on RDO Accrued


Kyle is on EBA 36 hours with 4 hours banked each week for RDO's. If taking annual leave do I pay 40 hours annual leave - less 4 hours accrued RDOS and pay leave loading on 36 hours or 40 hours?

Should they accrue 2.77 per week annual or 3.07 per week?

    Hi Tracey,

    Check your EBA wording to see if that gives you the information on how to process annual leave. We have employees on a 36-hour EBA and I have set up RDO's as two separate payroll items (RDO Taken & RDO Deduct). So on a normal week, they will work 40 hours normal time and I add the RDO Deduct line to their payroll and enter -4 hours.

    For Annual leave, RDO is still accrued, so if they take a full week of leave, it will be Annual Leave at 40 hours and RDO Deduct -4 hours. I pay Leave Loading on 40 hours. For accruals, I have 2.77 for AL and 1.38 for Personal leave. But this is all based on our EBA, so check yours to see if it's the same.

    I hope that helps.
