With BC Sick Pay Auto-Calculation and Leave Management, our system will automatically calculate the pay that is owed to the employee for the sick time based on the approval of a time off request.
We recommend completing the steps above if the employee cannot submit a time off request. Otherwise, the system will automatically create the Earning and Deduction entry after the approval of a time off request associated with the sick policy.
You will no longer be required to input a value under Amount in an Earning and Deduction entry, as the system will calculate this dollar value.
For each day an employee is sick, you must create a separate Earning and Deduction entry with the associated Optional Date. This ensures that the correct calculation is used for an average day's pay, which can change if the employee does not work the same hours each shift.
If the employee cannot wait for the next pay period to be paid, you can process an Off run to pay the employee for their sick time.
Please note that only Super Administrators and Team Administrators with permission to Run Payroll or Create Earning and Deduction Entries for the relevant Sick Taken will be able to complete this process.
