Holiday and leave record pads

Holiday and leave record pads


An employer must keep wage and time, and holidays and leave records that comply with the Employment Relations Act 2000 and the Holidays Act 2003. In particular, they must be able to show that they’ve correctly given their employees all minimum employment entitlements such as the minimum wage and annual holidays.

With regards to holiday and leave records, the following information must be recorded:

  • The dates the employee last became entitled to annual holidays and sick leave and their current entitlement to annual holidays and sick leave.
  • The dates of leave taken, including annual holidays, sick leave and bereavement, and payment received for each.
  • Any annual leave cashed up as well as the date and amount paid for each entitlement year.
  • The dates and number of hours worked on public holidays and the payment for these; the date (or 24-hour period) the public holiday or any part of it has been transferred to, and the date the employee became entitled to any alternative holiday (day-in-lieu).
  • The dates of, and payments for, any public holidays or alternative holidays they didn’t work but were entitled to holiday pay.
  • The cash value of any alternative holidays they gave up for payment.
  • The date when employment ended, and the amount of holiday pay they received at the end of employment.

The holiday and leave record pad includes fields to record all of the information required by this legislation and comes with 100 sheets which are hole-punched for use in a folder.

Also available, to satisfy other employment legislation requirements, is a time and wage record pad.
