Annual Leave- If Employee is on AL and Job Seeker payments.
How do you work out hours, should you pay normal rates for say 38 hours. Then do we receive the top up payment?or should it be reduced hours? One of our employees is not happy with this as we are taking his hours of AL and receiving $1500 payment, how do we do this?

I don't know how other people do ref annual leave and there is no clear guideline for this.

Logically, I just divide $1500 to all employees hourly rate and apply the same accrued leave rate as normal hours but those JKP hours do not subject super SGC. For example, if the employee hourly rate is $40, than $1500 equals 37.5 hours work. So it will accrued at 37.5 @.07694 hours annual leave. (.07694 is annual leave accrued per hour rate)

Thanks Lilly that makes sense, we also have RDOs ..so the guys work 40 hours but get paid for 38 and accrue those 2 hours. So confusingĀ

I think just work out at your normal accrued rate use JKP hours. I
