Managing leave adjustments within a pay run | Payroll Web Platform

Overview

Within your organisation, you may have a pay run where an employee needs an accrued leave balance adjusted to keep an accurate record of their leave entitlements. If this is the case, having payroll software that allows you to action these requests quickly and easily will reduce the administrative time you spend on managing employee leave accruals.

You can use the Leave Adjustment feature within the Pay Run module to change your employee's accrued leave value, with the ability to specify details such as the leave category, leave value, and any required supporting notes. You can also use this feature to delete a leave adjustment line if you added it in error.

  7. Complete the following fields:
    • Select leave category.
    • Notes.
    • Apply earnings rules.
    • Hours.

    Important

    Reducing leave balances
    Un-tick the Apply Earnings Rules box, if you are reducing leave balance as you do not want to include the leave adjustment in the employees' wage calculation.

    Increasing leave balances
    Enter the required leave balance increase into the hours field; i.e., if the employee had eight hours of leave processed in the previous pay run, then add eight hours into the hours field to increase their leave balance. Make sure you tick the Apply Earnings Rules tick box, so this Leave Adjustment will create an earnings line for the employee showing you made adjustments to their leave.

  8. Click the Save button.
