SimplePay’s leave functionality provides extensive flexibility that allows you to customise your leave settings and policies to suit your needs. However, given the complexities of childcare and extended childcare leave in Singapore, the SimplePay team have been hard at work behind the scenes to deliver a system policy for childcare leave that takes all the hassles of changing variables away. We’re happy to announce that this policy is now live!
The system policy will automatically calculate the correct leave entitlement for childcare leave, taking into account:
- the age of the employee’s youngest child,
- the citizenship of the employee’s youngest child, and
- the length of service of the employee.
This means that you’ll no longer need to manually calculate leave pro-ratas, determine an employee’s eligibility or change the number of days that they’re entitled to.
This new policy also introduces a new section to an employee’s profile, called the Family Information page. This page can be used to capture the information for an employee’s children so that the system policy can correctly calculate the childcare leave entitlement for the employee.
For detailed information on how this policy and functionality works, please check out our help page here.
We hope this improvement to the system makes capturing payroll an even simpler experience for you.
