Hi Helena

You would base it on their salary at the time of termination eg part-time.

Determine the standard monthly hours usually worked for the part-time salary & divide the gross monthly total by these hours to determine an hourly rate. Then, multiply their available leave hours by this hourly rate & enter that total using the applicable Leave Salary Payroll Item(s) (eg Holiday or Personal Salary)   


I always recommend setting ALL Leave to calculate on an “Every Hour” Accrual Period by default (this can be set in Preferences) & in each Employee’s record.

You can still use Salary Payroll Items but you also enter the number of hours every time as this is what generates the Leave Accrual.  This method also allows you to apportion Salaries across multiple Payroll Items (eg Leave) without affecting the gross total.

Thank you so much Shaz.

I've amended all staff to have "Every Hour" accrual period, but I've noticed with two staff, it wouldn't let me do more than 2 decimal places on one of their leave. It would work on annual leave with 4 decimal places, but not on their personal leave. Do you happen to know why? Every other staff member was allowed the 4 decimal places.

Regards

Helena

Now that I've looked at it again, on one staff member it allowed 4 decimal places for annual leave, but not personal leave and on the other staff member it allowed 4 decimal places for personal leave, but not annual leave.
(Edited)
Have you got “Every Hour” selected on BOTH tabs (Annual & Personal)?
