How to enter Statutory Holiday's into HRIS (Human Resource Information System):

All Positive Time employees MUST enter their Statutory Holidays in the system in order to be paid for them.

An Exception Time Reporter that works Monday to Friday should NEVER enter their statutory holidays. These hours are automatically processed by the system; entering these hours will result in an overpayment.

An Exception Time Reporter who works an alternate schedule with a day off (i.e., every second Friday, every Monday, etc.), has to enter their Statutory Holiday hours to ensure they are compensated on the appropriate day, as well as for the appropriate hours.

For example: John Smith has an alternate work schedule (Monday to Thursday each week). He works 7.5 hours per day, but only 60 hours each pay period (or 80% of a full-time employee's 75 hour schedule). This means that he is entitled to 6 hours off on a statutory holiday (80% of a 7.5 hour day). He would have to use another form of leave for the remaining 1.5 hours for each statutory holiday. The time reporting code for a statutory holiday is SH2. If John decided to take vacation leave for the remaining hours, their statutory holiday would be entered as: 6.0 SH2, 1.5 A01.
