United Kingdom Statutory Leave and Pay 2018/19

2018 Material

It is aimed at those who are looking to start running a payroll in the UK for their organisation, or those who are utilising the services of a service provider who want a better understanding of the setup requirements so they are better able to support their business and ensure compliance in their organisation.

This is a high level pre-recorded webcast, aimed at giving candidates an overview of what is required to set up a company and payroll responsibilities in the UK.

Like many countries the UK has a range of different types of statutory
leave and payments that employees are entitled to receive and cover
annual leave, time off and pay for parents, sickness and flexible working.
The entitlement, calculating the payments and the treatment of the
payments is complex and requires HR and Payroll to work closely
together.


Some of the legislation is UK based, others are from the EU but have
been gold plated in the UK. In addition this case law whether in the UK
courts or the European Courts of Justice have also had an impact for
very specific circumstances.


All of which means that payroll teams have a lot of legislation to consider
when processing these statutory payments and leave; and what’s more
some payroll systems can manage all the appropriate record keeping
and calculations whilst others only support part of the requirements and
manual calculations and record keeping is required.
This course will give you all the information you need to ensure you

understand how to process payments, the interaction between the
different types of leave and payments, the records that must be kept,
employment rights and the information you must provide to your
employees.
