Do JobKeeper topup payments accrue leave?

By default, only regular earnings accrue leave - JobKeeper top-ups are classified as an Allowance, are not set up to accrue leave and will not do so when entered into a pay run. However according to Fair Work, employees subject to a stand down direction still accrue their usual leave entitlements for the period the direction applies.

 

If your employee has entered a stand down period, these leave accruals should be entered onto the pay run before the JobKeeper top-up is entered. There are different options to automate the ongoing accrual of leave based on how the employee's hours are normally captured; for full instructions on managing the stand down of employees in a pay run, see here
