I am trying to determine if there is a way to set up for these new guidelines that would make the calculation for me. Is this possible? How do people in other provinces work this system?
Hi, I am not familiar with Alberta's Stat Holiday Pay, however if it is hourly based then set-up a new category in Payroll for Stats similar to regular wages or wages at time and a half.
Hope this helps!
Thanks. I understand that part. I am just trying to figure out if there is a easier way to do the actual calculation part.
HI PaperTrails.....I don't know of any shortcut. I did payroll yesterday and today and it takes me approximately 15 minutes more per person to get the job done thanks to the new legislations. I have 40 employees. That's an additional 10 hours added to my job I don't get paid for.
Marg, can you elaborate on what makes up the 15 mins? If you have 8-hour employees, the stat holiday is 8 hours (like always)
Nope doesn't work for us. We are oil and gas industries where these guys work anywhere from 6 to 20 hour days. We have to add up all hours (less overtirme) in the 28 days for each type of pay - rig, shop and travel and then do the vacation calculation, add it all together and take the 5%.
It definitely is more time consuming. Very few of my clients work a 8 hour day/40 hour week, so I will be doing the same process as you.
I have created a spreadsheet that works pretty slick. If you would like me to send it to you pm me and I will send it to you by email.
Thank you! That sounds perfect. I will pm you.
