Like many countries the UK has a range of different types of statutory leave and payments that employees are entitled to receive and cover annual leave, time off and pay for parents, sickness and flexible working. The entitlement, calculating the payments and the treatment of the payments is complex and requires HR and Payroll to work closely together.

Some of the legislation is UK based, others are from the EU but have been gold plated in the UK. In addition this case law whether in the UK courts or the European Courts of Justice have also had an impact for very specific circumstances.

All of which means that payroll teams have a lot of legislation to consider when processing these statutory payments and leave; and what’s more some payroll systems can manage all the appropriate record keeping and calculations whilst others only support part of the requirements and manual calculations and record keeping is required.

This course will give you all the information you need to ensure you understand how to process payments, the interaction between the different types of leave and payments, the records that must be kept, employment rights and the information you must provide to your employees.
