Dear Personio Community,

 
often, in Finland the annual leave entitlement is allocated at a specific month in the year. However, in Personio leave entitlement can only either be granted at the beginning of the year or at the employee’s hire date. 

Nevertheless, there is a little trick that allows you to still allocate the annual leave entitlement in a specific month. In order to do so, just create an accrual policy of 0 days, assign it to your employees and then import the leave entitlement on the 1st of the specified month.

Hi all,

 

Thank you for tagging @Daniele and for the comment @MirjamPichler. Yes, I have manually updated these starting for the specific month. One problem there still happens to be and that is the Saturday rule that we have in Finland. We are now uploading days without the Saturday calculations but I hear constantly questions about that. I have also heard that Personio would make this Finnish holiday rules possible in the future?

 

Thanks,

Katriina

Hi @Katriina

Thank you so much for your comment! In order to help you, could you please tell me more about the Saturday rule you have in Finland? You can write it here as a comment or you can even ask it as a new topic in the Implementation Area so that the rest of the community can see it and give their input on the subject! 

 

I look forward to hearing more about this, as I am sure there are more people in our community that have the same question :blush:

 

Kindest regards,

Hi @Maria Laura Arauco,

 

Yes, sure. So basically in many companies Saturday’s are included into the holiday calculations (even though in office work they are day off’s). So basically if you take 5 days off there is the 6th day calculated as well (Saturday). There are couple of cases where it is not calculated but basically a full amount of holidays is 30 days, which of 5 days are Saturdays. This comes from our annual act law. 

 

Then we have the different accrual policies, depending on the dates new employees might only make 2 days per month and later 2,5 days per month. This as well comes from our law: annual act. 

 

But at the moment I at least can manage with doing this manually and I assume many others in Finland do the same.

Apparently, this regulation also exists in Denmark!

 @SimonAndersen @Pernille @Mur @Anne Sofie 

Let me ask the people based in Denmark: were you able to implement the Accrual Policy in Personio? Let us know in the comments.

If you still have any doubts or questions about this topic, just reply and we’ll be happy to help! 😊
