How Vacation and Sick Hours are accrued
If an employee is entitled to 2 weeks vacation per year (80 paid hours), enter “80” in Vac/Hrs/Yr (Accrual Rate). Each pay date PRO-PAY will accrue vacation hours as follows:
Vac Hours Accrued per Pay period = Hours worked / 2080 (hours per year) times Accrual rate.
Example: Employee accrual rate = 80 hrs/Yr and worked 40 Hrs this week.
Vac Hours Accrued this Pay Period = 40/2080 X 80 = 1.538 Hrs
Salaried employees’ Vacation and Sick accruals are based on a 40 hour week.
The accrued Vacation and Sick Hours may be optionally printed on the employee’s pay stub.
