The length of a working day and a working week are important in calculating annual leave.
Assuming a 5 day week, employees across various businesses differ in their working hours - generally being either:
- 37.5 hours a week
- 38 hours a week OR
- 40 hours a week
Per day, this comes to:
- 7.5 hours a day
- 7.6 hours a day OR
- 8 hours a day
This is important because full days and half days of annual leave are calculated on this basis in Employment Hero.
This can be adjusted in Employment Hero to reflect your business.
