How to set up Holiday Pay in PASS

Getting started with Holiday Pay in PASS is straightforward, catering to both fixed and variable hour contracts. Here’s how to get it up and running:

Enable Holiday Pay calculations:

Whether your team works fixed hours or their schedules vary, activating Holiday Pay calculations is simple. Navigate to your ‘Contracts and Pay’ section under Roster settings, select your contract type, and enable ‘Calculate Holiday Pay’. If your staff includes fixed-hour employees who work overtime, remember to include overtime in their Holiday Pay calculations.

Upload historic pay data (if needed):

If you’re missing some pay data for the past 52 weeks, you can easily upload this using our downloadable dynamic template to make sure everyone’s Holiday Pay is calculated accurately, based on government best-practice guidelines.

How to book and manage holidays

Booking a holiday should be as relaxing as taking one. With PASS, you can book employee time off right from the daily schedule view or under the Holiday and Absences tab. Once booked, these holidays show up on the employee’s Timesheet, ready for your review and approval. It’s that simple!

How holiday appears on Timesheets and Gross Pay Advice (GPA)

On Timesheets:

Each booked holiday appears clearly on the Timesheet, showing the pay rate applicable at the end of the holiday. This integration ensures accuracy and transparency in managing Holiday Pay.

On Gross Pay Advice (GPA):

Verified holidays automatically populate the GPA. Whether generated automatically or manually, you’ll see a detailed summary of each employee’s total earnings, including Holiday Pay.
