I just newly joined this company. My understanding of the calculation is on the first year when they joined, if no full 12 months service in that year, then we count pro-rata. Then the next year, if got full 12 months, we will count it 8 days. And for the following year, if got full 12 months continous service again, annual leave is 12 days.
But the admin staff just argued with me that it should be calculated from the joint date, so if the person joined at 1/2/2009, then 31/1/2010 will considered as full 1 year service, then continue 1/2/2010 till 31/1/2011 will consider 2nd year of service. So, they calculate the annual leave entitlement for year 2011 will be 1/1/2010 to 31/1/2010, which is pro-rata of 8 days entitlement, so is 0.5 days plus from 1/2/2010 to 31/12/2010, which is 11 days. the annual leave entitlement for that year is 11.5 days.
I just found that it's pretty confusing, error found and workload also to maintain such a calculation since the workers is not just 10 or 20 ppl but it's more than 100 ppl. I don't think that labour law has insisted us on applying the method that they apply. Am i right?
