Exempt paid parental leave from accruing entitlements
For hourly employees the entitlement will not accrue as there are no hours to calculate the percentage. This seems contradictory, but normally hourly employees will accrue leave as a percentage of hours worked. While they are on Paid Parental Leave, they are being paid via a Salary Wage category, rather than an Hourly Wage category. Therefore having no hours on the paycheque means that no leave will accrue.
Salary employees will need to have the Entitlement(s) deselected in their card. This is because generally these employees will be set to accrue a flat amount of hours per Pay Period/Month/Year, and unless the entitlement is deselected in their card, the entitlement will continue accruing throughout the period of their Paid Parental Leave.
To deselect the Entitlement(s):
- Go to the Card File command centre and click Cards List .
- Click the Employee tab.
- Click the zoom arrow next to the relevant employee.
Click the Payroll Details tab and choose Entitlements.
Deselect any entitlements that should not be calculated during the Paid Parental Leave period.

When the employee finishes the paid parental leave you'll need to select these entitlements again so that the leave entitlements will accrue.
