Pro-ration of Annual Leave Before Maternity Leave
Dear HR Practitioners,
Would like to ask the community on pro-ration of AL before ML and UPL.
For those employees who are going on ML, they will want to clear their AL first. This employee's EDD is on 14 Oct 2019, and her AL balance is 7 days (which is based on full year entitlement).
This will mean that:
AL: 16 Sept 2019 - 24 Sept 2019
ML: 25 Sept 2019 - 17 Dec 2019 (as she is a foreigner)
UPL: 18 Dec 2019 to TBC
Because she will be going on UPL on 18 Dec 2019, can I confirm that we will need to pro-rate her AL (entitlement: 18 days, balance: 7 days) as her previous entitlement is based on full year?
“ If you have taken unpaid leave You should exclude periods of approved unpaid leave when calculating your annual leave entitlement.
If you have taken unpaid leave, your employer can pro-rate your leave entitlement based on how many complete months you have worked. “
It will be needed to pro-rate her AL (entitlement: 18 days, balance: 7 days) as her previous entitlement is based on full year.
According to MOM, if she worked more than 3 months but less than a year, her AL is pro-rated based on the number of full months she has worked. This applies even if she is still on probation. If more than a year, based on the number of full months she worked in current year. AL is pro-rated using this formula:
(Number of completed months of services ÷ 12 months) × Number of days of annual leave entitlement
Note: If the fraction of a day is less than one-half (0.5), round it down. If it is half or more, round it up to one day.
