We have recently discovered that when a new hire starts their PTO proration is based on calendar days and not worked days. We are semi-monthly so the accrual looks at 13, 14, 15, or 16 days in the period and then if you start on the 3rd day, being Monday the first work day, the accrual is reduced by two days even though you worked all the eligible days in the period.

i.e. 2016 - January 1st to 15th is 15 calendar days but only 11 work days (Monday through Friday) If the employee starts on 1/4/16 the system calculates it as 12 out of 15 calendar days or 80%. We calculate it as 10 out of 11 work days or 91%. This is true for January 18th as well. The system calculates it as 14 out of 16 calendar days or 88%. We would calculate it as 10 out of 10 work days or 100%.

I am not sure if the program looks at 7 days instead of 5 for weekly payroll, or 14 days instead of 10 for biweekly payroll, so you may want to check that if that is how you pay.

It would be very helpful to have the program look at available work days i.e. exclude Saturday and Sunday, instead of total calendar days. I am not sure how many companies have their employees work 7 days a week throughout the world, but I would venture to say more would only have them work 5 days a week.

Please consider this enhancement in the next upgrade.
