Dear Personio Community,
In the Netherlands, there are 2 different types of paid leave entitlement.
Full-time employees are entitled to a minimum of 20 days of paid holiday leave per year (‘Statutory Leave’) which expire 6 months following the end of the year in which they were accrued.
The second type of paid leave entitlement is ‘Non-Statutory Leave’ which is the paid leave entitlement above the statutory minimum. The amount of days depends on the company’s own regulations and expires 5 years following the last day of the calendar year in which the entitlement has been accrued.
In Personio you have the possibility to take both leave types into account by creating two corresponding absence types. Name the first absence type “Statutory Leave” and set the accrual carryover limit to June 30th of the following year and name the second one “Non-Statutory Leave” with an unlimited carryover.
Following please assign both accrual policies to your employees and inform them to take the Statutory Leave first. Besides that, if you would like to make sure Non-Statutory Leave is taken within 5 years you can also create an annual reminder for managers to check their employees’ Non-Statutory leave balance. Further information on how to configure reminders can be found here.
What are your thoughts on this configuration? Do you have other ideas how to best map both leave types?
