From 1 April 2019, employees affected by domestic violence can request paid domestic violence leave (DVL). It works in a similar way to sick leave, but to learn all the ins and outs visit the Employment New Zealand website.
To manage DVL payments in Essentials, set up a new pay item.
Enter a Name for the earning such as "Special leave".
Be discreet with the name for this pay item as it will appear on the employee's payslip when DVL is paid.
For the Rate, select Per Hour.
Leave the amount blank.
Select Taxable from the tax drop down.
Select the below options if applicable:
Select this option if compulsory employer contributions should be excluded from overtime payments. If unsure, check with your accounting advisor or check the IRD website.
Exclude from AWE and OWP calculations
Select this option to exclude the pay item from the Annual leave calculations for Ordinary weekly pay or Average weekly earnings. However, the pay item will still be included in the Use Ordinary weekly pay (OWP) formula. Learn more about Leave calculations.
When you're done, assign the pay items to your employees as described in the next task.
