Holidays can be configured in the system to impact billing and/or payroll.
Holidays must first be created in Accounting Settings.
Paying Holiday Rates for Visits
In order for an Employee to receive holiday pay for a Visit when Payroll is run, the following conditions must be respected:
- The Employee must be eligible for holiday pay by virtue if their Employment Type;
- the day the Visit takes place must be configured as a holiday
- the Service Code of the Visit must have a Holiday Pay Code set.
Paying Holiday Rates for Premiums
If an Employee is eligible for a Visit Premium or a Daily Premium on a holiday, the Premium can only apply the Pay Code set on it in Accounting Settings - so the rate will not vary based on a holiday.
It is however possible to set up a Premium Rule specifically for holidays, which will automatically calculate a payroll item with your Pay Code of choice when applicable.
This will apply to all Employees, whether or not their Employment Type qualifies them for holiday pay otherwise.
Billing Holiday Rates for Visits
There are two automated ways to bill Holiday Rates - at the Funder level and at the Bill Code level.
Billing Holiday Rates for Premiums
There is currently no automated method for billing Holiday Rates for Visit Premiums or Client Premiums.
