Hi, I have been paying an employee and just realised that personal leave and hourly holiday leave is not accurring at all. I have realised my error was that I did not put a rate in the leave details area. How do I get the system (reckon premier 2017) to update the employee and acrrue the correct amount. I have made the changes but it does not seem to be updating. I did read a post where it said to do a dummy pay run.......how do you do that if that is what I need to do......frustrated. Looking for help. The call center is no help.

Hi Amanda - perhaps a couple of screen dumps of the settings you have put in for each leave type?  if you have put a 0 in the Max accrual box - then nothing happens... but send through a screen dump first and we will then see if the problem is here - plus let us know what the payroll item type is (hourly wages or salary) and then we can also look if the settings for this are correct too... you should manually work out the current accrual and you can add that into the first box for Personal & Holiday leave to catch up..  cheers Linda

Hi Amanda - so now what you need to check is the Hourly Pay item - edit this and next through all the screens until the last one - then check - is there a tick in the Include in Every Hour Worked leave accruals???? if no tick then your settings for this persons leave will not work - add the tick if required.
Other points to note - tick the Leave Liability box on the Person screen so that this leave type is included in your leave liability reports.
Also - double check your hours to accrue for each hour worked... generally for a 38 hour week with 20 days annual leave per annum  - the calculate is 20 x 7.6 divided by 52 weeks divided by 38hrs per week = .07692 hrs to accrue per hour worked - then you half this for the 10 days personal leave = .03846 hrs to accrue per hour worked.  Cheers Linda
