The National Employment Standards specify that as a minimum, full-time and part-time employees get 4 weeks of annual leave, based on their ordinary hours of work. Also, the minimum personal leave entitlement is 10 days per year for full-time employees, or pro rata of 10 days for part-time employees, depending on their hours of work.
If your employees are entitled to...
use this percentage...
4 weeks annual leave per year (or pro-rata for part-time employees)
10 days personal leave per year (or pro-rata for part-time employees)
If you're setting up a different type of leave, or an employee is entitled to more than the minimum leave entitlement, you'll need to calculate the entitlement percentage.

Use this simple calculator to work out your entitlement percentage. Just enter the employee's standard weekly hours and yearly leave entitlement (in weeks) and you're done.
Remember, the yearly leave entitlement is what the employee is entitled to, not necessarily what they'll accrue. E.g a part timer might be entitled to 4 weeks annual leave, but might only accrue 2 weeks based on their hours worked.
