Many employers are confused as to how to comply with holiday and parental leave legislation. This one day course will help you manage staff entitlements under Holidays Act 2003 and the Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act 1987.

Do you want to find out staff entitlements to annual holidays, public holidays, alternative holidays, sick leave, and bereavement leave?

Do you want to calculate and manage holiday pay procedures so you comply with the Holidays Act 2003?

Do you want to know how to apply for parental leave, so you can guide staff on their correct entitlements?

This practical course will help you identify common and complex issues of non-compliance under the Holidays Act, and provide you with options to manage these issues.

This course will help you calculate annual holidays to comply with the Holidays Act 2003. Identify the two calculations for annual holiday pay: average weekly earnings and ordinary weekly pay. Consider how to budget for and schedule annual holidays, such as through closedowns.

We will practise calculating annual holiday pay for permanent staff on both fixed and variable hours, including at the end of employment. Identify when you must include commission and bonuses in gross earnings. Find out how to pay casual and fixed term employees Pay As You Go.

Find out your staff minimum entitlements for “BAPS” leave: bereavement, sick leave, alternative holidays, family violence leave, and sick leave. We will answer questions like, what is otherwise a working day for an employee? How can you ask for proof of sick leave? How do you manage frequent absenteeism? When do you use Relevant Daily Pay or Average Daily Pay for calculating BAPS leave?

Parental leave entitlements are set to change in 2020. Keep updated on entitlements, and an employer’s responsibilities with respect to parental leave. Find out how an employee applies for parental leave, and their right to payment through the IRD. Discover how to calculate annual holidays after an employee returns from parental leave.

Our course engages participants through innovative and fun practical activities for compliance with holiday and parental leave legislation.

We will consider case studies to discuss complex issues regarding payroll. The workbook includes activities, case law and an overview of legislation.

This course focuses on minimum entitlements, rather than additional entitlements provided by collective agreements.

Who should attend?

The course will appeal to Payroll and HR personnel within their first 5 years of practice, or wanting a refresher course. It will also be useful for anyone who wants to know how to comply with minimum holiday and leave entitlements, and how to manage parental leave applications.

All personal development events are subject to HRNZ Terms and Conditions.

Registrations close 8:30am Wednesday 6 May 2020.
