Re: Pro rate - annual leave

Re: Annual Leave - pro rated

My boss wants to know the annual leave entitlement (from Jan. 2010 to Dec. 2010) for a staff who joined in 1st October 2008.

Company Hand Book printed -

All confirmed employees are entitle to the following annual paid leave based on the tenure of service from the date he/she joined the Company.

14 days - 1-2 years completed service.
16 days - above 2 years - 5 years of completed service.

My calculation is -

Jan to Sept 2010 = 9 months /12 x 14 days = 10.5 days (round up to 11 days)
Oct to Dec 2010 = 3 months/12 x 16 days = 4 days
Total = 15 days

Am I correct?

The argument is that he said that we cannot pro - rate the annual leave for confirmed staff and he/she is entitled for 14 days only from Jan 2010 to Dec 2010. Next year onwards she is only entitled for the 16 days.

Pls. advise

it should be : Jan to Sept 2010= 10.5days
Oct to dec 2010=4 days
total for Yr 2010is 14.5days

In the company handbook was stated 'All confirmed employees are entitle to the following annual paid leave based on the tenure of service from the date he/she joined the Company.'

notice the word ' tenure of service from the date he/she joined' the company? As long as the staff joined the company for the service above 2years, he/she is entitle to 16days as mentioned in the handbook. It regardless of the calender of the year but it's based on the tenure of service from the date he/she joined the company. Therefore, it should be pro-rated for year 2010's annual leave.
