When completing an Employees final pay cheque, do you accrue Annual Leave 2.92hrs ?

or do you press the "Do not accrue hours" button ?

    It’s best practice to accrue all leave Every hour (rather than Every Pay) to ensure accruals remain accurate for any fluctuations in hours worked.

    What does this final pay consist of ? Any hours worked or just payout of AL entitlements ? If it’s just AL entitlements, leave doesn’t accrue on leave paid out on termination so in that case, you would tick the “Do not accrue …” checkbox.

    NOTE: Under STP, Leave paid out on termination needs to be reported separately (to leave taken) so make sure you have a new Payroll Item set up for this ☺️

    Thank you for the reply.

    I did his final weeks pay on the same payslip as his unused annual leave.
    So maybe i should not have ticked the "Do not accrue hours" button ? so it would calculate correctly.
    I am finalising his LSS, can i add the 2.92hrs to the payslip with his annual leave?

    Leave only needs to accrue on his normal hours actually worked so yes, untick this on the normal pay.

    if you’re paying out the Leave entitlement separately, your new ‘Leave payout on Termination’ Payroll Item should be configured not to accrue leave on this anyway.

    Thank you.
    So to confirm, I am finalising his LSS on Wednesday, can i add the 2.92hrs for the short fall of the annual leave to the same payslip as his LSS to balance it out?

    " ... So to confirm, I am finalising his LSS on Wednesday, can i add the 2.92hrs for the short fall of the annual leave to the same payslip as his LSS to balance it out ..?"

    Well I guess so ... but it might not be the correct amount - Is the LSL payout for exactly the same number of LSL hours as his final pay for hours worked ??? (This is why leave should be set to Every hour 😬 )

    Employee is salary earner, would it be easier to undo last payslip and undue the "Do not Accrue Time" Button.

    re apply the correct hours and pay the difference.

    Yes, I think that would be simpler 😊

    Are you also paying out any AL entitlement ?
