Leave is money. Whether it be annual , sick or any other type.
Strict control should be maintained of all leave records.
Pay Solutions will manage your leave, by maintaining all your records, entering all leave taken and accruing monthly entitlements.
Provision: - this is the movement for the month. On 15 days per annum, an employee will accrue 1.25 days per month. The leave provision for the month is 1.25 multiplied by and employee’s daily rate of pay. (As per BCEA – the leave is calculated on basic salary, any permanent allowance, Overtime & Commission over a 13 week period and company contributions to Medical Aid or Retirement Fund).
Leave Liability: This is the actual value of the leave for an employee. For example if an employee has 10 days vocation– then the leave liability is the value of the daily rate of pay multiplied by the 10 days due.
Failure to maintain leave records could cost an employer dearly
