Please note - this existing release note has been updated.
There was a section that referred to the setting automatically switching over to 52 weeks when portals are rolled forward. Fourth are removing that automation today (24th March 2020).
The reason for this is...
In light of the current situation and the uncertainty that surrounds the new government legislation in relation to furloughed employees, we have removed the automation that switches the flexible holiday calculation over to 52 weeks. This is because the current calculation for most portals is 12 weeks and, should the government require this information for the purpose of paying furloughed employees, the data held at flexible employee level can be easily accessed. To ensure all companies are compliant with legislation, a script will be run to switch the setting over to 52 weeks on 6th April 2020.
New functionality to allow the calculation of Flexible workers’ holiday allowance and pay to be done over 52 weeks, in line with new legislation.
Release date: 12th March 2020
Reason for the Change
New Legislation will come into force on 6th April 2020 as part of the ‘Good Work Plan’ whereby holiday allowance and pay for Flexible employees must be calculated over a 52 week period.
