Enable the Accrue Special Annual Leave check box. Special annual leave accrues for time worked on Sundays and public holidays:

Accrual of Special Annual Leave

  • The Pro Rata Down check box determines whether or not per-payroll statutory annual leave accrual is decreased on a pro rata basis, i.e. when the employee works less than the full time week.
  • The Pro Rata Up check box determines whether or not per-payroll statutory annual leave accrual is increased on a pro rata basis, i.e. when the employee works more than the full time week.
  • Enter the Capping Value (hours) where a limit on the number of accrued hours of leave applies.


Payment of Special Annual Leave 

  • Include Penalties is checked to pay additional annual leave inclusive of penalties that would ordinarily have applied. 
  • Include Cumulative Overtime is enabled as the default, reflecting that leave represents hours worked for the purpose of overtime calculation. This condition affects leave hours in the current pay period that are in a cumulative overtime condition. When enabled, cumulative overtime is paid on all leave hours. When disabled, all leave hours that are in the overtime condition are truncated from the payroll, not paid and subsequently not deducted from the employee's entitlement. Common cumulative conditions include over a number of hours per week and over a number of hours per shift.
  • When Include in RDO Accrual is checked, special annual leave entries will be considered worked times and will contribute to the RDO accrual.
  • Enable Pay on Termination instructs the ClockOn termination wizard to pay annual leave by default. This can be manually overridden at the time the termination wizard is opened.  
  • Special Pub. Hol Rate is used to determine the rate the employee will be paid for working on a Sunday or public holiday.
  • The Special Pub. Hol. Entitlement (hours) field determines how many hours of special annual leave will be accrued for working on Sundays and public holidays.
