Maintaining an employee's details is completed in the Maintenance command centre by clicking Maintain Employees. Under the Leave Details tab are the following fields:
- Normal hours/day
- Normal hours per week
These fields are used to calculate the annual leave allocation.
An employee with 8% holiday pay will earn 4 weeks of annual leave. If their Normal hours per week is set to 40, their Annual leave entitlement will be 160 hours, in other words 4 weeks.
When deciding what an employee's Normal hours per week are, it is helpful to ask the question: "If this employee has a day or a week off sick, how many hours would they get paid?" The answer generally indicates what the normal, or standard, hours per week would be.
The Normal hours/day and Normal hours per week amounts also affect the calculation of the annual leave rate as well as the Ordinary Weekly Pay.
