Thread: How do I calculate leave pay?

  1. #1

    Default How do I calculate leave pay?

    How do I calculate how much annual leave to pay for someone who works 3 days a week (8 hour day)?

    The Dept of Labour website says:
    "21 consecutive days annual leave on full remuneration in respect of each annual leave cycle; or

    (b) by agreement, one day of annual leave on full remuneration for every 17 days on which the employee worked or was entitled to be paid;"

    So... using (a): She works 3 out of 5 days (60% of a week) so as a full time worker is entitled to 21 days of leave, she gets 60% of 21 = 12.60 days.

    Or using (b): 52 weeks x 3 days a week = 156 days divided by 17 = 9.18 days leave.

    I am not looking to pay her as little as possible. I would like to know what is right?

    20 days = 1 month.

    I would go with b:
    i) because if you go with a you loose an extra 3 days (1 week in her case) production.
    ii) 'by agreement' means you can agree to anything. As long as you both agree to it then it is fine.

    You could also show her the act and ask her to help you decide.

    Don't have a contract. Don't have any agreement. Have no idea how much leave she is "due". Just want to do the right thing.

    Does this mean 20 work days in a month? How does this help/advise me?

    [52 x 5] / 12 = 21.667 days per month on average.

    21 days leave per year includes weekends but excludes public holidays. So in effect it is 15 working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) per year for people working 5 day weeks.


    For someone working 3 days per week, their leave would be 15 x 60% = 9 working days (excluding public holidays and weekends).

    So in effect the person working 5 days or 3 days still gets 3 weeks off, but only the working days are paid for, not weekends.

    Hope that helps.

    True. Especially when it comes to deductions that people claim to "know nothing about".

    Once one guy came up to me to ask why I had paid him less pay while pointing to the pay slip which read:

    Less: PAYE.
