Annual Leave Pro-ration

We have cumulative annual leave table as follows;


Year of Service

6 – 7 years

20 days

8 years and beyond

21 days


If the employees joined date fall in July 2011 which annual leave entitlement cluster should they fall under in 2017?

It should be 20 days if your company is practising the calculation by calendar year, where first year of the annual leave has been pro-rated while the full entitlement has been granted in subsequent year. Unless your company is calculating the Annual Leave using the anniversary year, which is rare as market practice, and rather confusing.
