When an employee takes parental leave, typically, there will be a contractual agreement in place for payment of money, when employees are on leave over and above the statutory minimum payments. This is known as Occupational Parental Pay (OPP). Each organisation will have one or more agreements in place.
You can calculate a parental absence payment schedule for an employee taking parental leave, and pay the requisite amounts each period.
From a payroll point of view, a payment schedule needs to be calculated in advance. A payment schedule will cover the term of the absence, and show how much statutory pay is due, and how much occupational pay is due. Each period, the relevant payments will then be made to the employee.
Within Cintra iQ, you can set your company's parental payment scheme to apply maternity pay, paternity pay or adoption pay to an employee.
