Hi @Sharon Harkins
This new change would need to be switched on by doing the following:
To switch on the 52 week holiday calculation:
- Go to HR Module > Administration > Global Settings > Edit Default Holiday Settings > Holiday Calculations
- Select 52 Weeks against the Calculation of average number of days worked based on 52, 26 or 12 weeks? setting
I hope this helps!
Hi @Sharon Harkins the legislation states that the new calculation must be in place for 6th April 2020.
