An option to list general holiday pay for salaried employees

With the new labor standard laws in Alberta it is now a requirement to have all general holidays listed on a pay stub. This is not an option currently and can only be done manually in the setup of the reports and forms. This has to be entered before each pay period with a general holiday and deleted out the customized form after.

An employer must provide an employee with a statement of earnings at the end of each pay period that shows all of the following:

  • statement period
  • regular and overtime hours of work
  • wage rate and overtime rate
  • earnings paid, listing items separately (e.g. wages, overtime, general holiday pay and vacation pay),
  • deductions from earnings and the reason for each deduction
  • hours taken off in lieu of overtime
  • Go to Settings > Payroll > Income and rename Income 1 (or 2, 3 etc.) to General Holiday and make the Unit "Hourly"
    Enable that option on each employee card and enter their hourly rate (on the Income tab)
    When there is a General Holiday, enter the hours when creating the pay cheques.

    No need to enable and disable - it just sits there until you use it.
