sick leave deducted from Vacation

Let's find out why sick leave is deducted from the vacation leave, lilavalv.

 

The sick pay item may have been incorrectly set up on your list. You need to determine how you enter the payroll item. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Lists menu, then Payroll Item List.
  2. On the Payroll Item List, double-click the item used to pay the sick leave.
  3. On the Edit payroll item window, verify the type of payroll item used.
  4. If it’s incorrect, use a different one or create a new payroll item.
  5. Vacation only accrues on regular pay items such as hourly wages or salary, it does not accrue on bonus items or any additional items.

After making some corrections, you can also check the employee profile. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, then Employee Center.
  2. Double-click the employee name to open the profile.
  3. On the Edit Employee screen, go to the Payroll Info tab.
  4. Select Sick/Vacation, then verify and adjust the following data as needed:
    • Sick and vacation hours available
    • Hours used in the year
    • Accrual period
    • Hours accrued is entered
    • Maximum number of hours
    • Reset hours each year
    • Start date of the accrual.

If the accrual affects your employees' vacation and sick pay, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Team. They can correct your payroll so you have accurate records.
