Long Service Leave Australia and change in working hours.


We are looking at accruing long service leave for Australia.

The employees we will be accruing for are monthly paid salaried employees and are not paid thru SAP.

I have configured up quota generation rules and quota transfer rules as per the model examples provided by SAP in client 000 and so far so good, however what I cannot find guidance on is where employees have changed their planned working hours. For instance the legislation for Victoria states

"Where an employee’s ordinary hours have changed in the 12 months immediately before the employee takes long service leave, the employee’s
hours for calculating long service leave will be averaged over the preceding 12 months or five years, whichever average hours are the greater."

Is there a standard way of configuring up this requirement or is it a question of adjusting the IT2006 quota based on a manual calculation when the employee has an LSL absence ?

    If you run Time Evaluation, you could create 2 Information Time Types that will "every month" calculate the average hours over the last 12 months (1) and over the last 5 years (2), for every employee who has been employed for x number of years.

    Whenever an employee would go on Long Service Leave, that information would be available.

    If the scenario is not much happening u can convince business for quota correction by manula calculation

    if not Luks can only be handled through Time types

    Thanks for the various replies.

    Eventually got to meet one of the people from the Australian side of the business and they clarified their expectations.

    Bottom line is we will be keeping it simple with a basic accrual and HR dealing with anomalies when the need arises.
