NZ Payroll - Holiday pay Vs annual leave

Started by Sharna Russell -   in NZ Payroll

An employee is having to take time off to nurse a very sick child (will be a while before he returns) and i am trying to sort out what exactly we owe him.
so at the moment i have holiday pay showing as $483 owing, which amounts to 19 hours (there abouts). if i pay him annual leave of the 19 hours will this take his holiday pay amount back to 0.
Also his holiday pay is showing 144 hours, is this the amount the hours we owe him now, or is this what he is owed in general if he stays employed until his next annivarsary date (01/18).
The holiday pay amount is the hours still owing from the last anniversary date. The holiday pay is the 8% accrual for the current year.

Hope that helps.
