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?
