Three ways to work out annual leave

by , 30 August 2015
There are three ways you can use to calculate your employees' annual leave as according to Section 20(2) of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act.

They are:

Method#1: For each annual leave cycle, you must give your employees at least 21 consecutive days of annual leave on full remuneration.

This adds up to 15 working days and six weekend days. This method may be changed by agreement with the employee.

Note that an annual leave cycle is a period of 12 months with the same employer (you) straight after the employee began working for him or from having completed her previous leave cycle. 

Method#2: The second method involves one day of leave for every 17 days worked or which the employee was entitled to be paid for.
