2. How to schedule paid leave?
It's important to set up the paid leave absences in one go, indicating the start and end dates. This will enable you to have a fair calculation of the leave to be deducted and a single absence line in your payroll report.
If your employee wishes to take paid leave, but has already worked their contracted weekly hours during the other weekdays, you should indicate a weekly rest day. It wouldn't be fair to deduct paid leave when the employee has already worked their contracted working hours. This will also save you having to pay for overtime.
Let's take a few examples.
👉 For Colette, who is taking a full week off:
In 5 business days : We count it 5 days of paid leave.
In 6 working days : We count it 6 days of paid leave.
👉 For Abby, who works 4 days and takes Friday, Saturday and Sunday off:
In 5 business days : We count it 1 day of paid leave as she works 4 days. The Saturday and Sunday are implicit weekly rest days.
In 6 working days : We count it 2 days of paid leave as she works 4 days. The Sunday is an implicit weekly rest day.
👉 For Katie, who is resting on Monday and Tuesday. She is working on Wednesday and Thursday and has the rest of the week off:
In 5 business days just like in 6 working days, we count it 3 days of paid leave because she only works 2 days this week.
3. What if my paid leave includes a public holiday?
📸 A picture example ?
Take Mary and Hélène, who both took paid leave over the week of the French National Day.
The public holiday occurs on a Friday, a working day for Mary and a usual rest day for Hélène.
