How are paid leaves calculated?

Paid leaves depend on the calculation basis of your establishment (working or business days). In the payroll report, the number of paid leaves indicated will also depend directly on this configuration. We explain you the difference in this article.

On the schedule, the duration of the paid leaves is calculated on the basis of the weekly contract of your employees. If the weekly work time of your employee is 35 hours, we divide this value by your paid leave settings (5 if you are in business days or 6 if you are in working days), then we multiply the result by the number of days taken. You have the possibility to revalue this duration, we explain it here.

For example: Abby has a 42h/week contract. She takes 5 days of paid leave and her establishment works in business days. We will have (42 / 5) x 5 = 42 hours.
