Before you calculate vacation payments for an employee, set up the vacation payment calculation method in the General settings for vacation calculationform. The form uses the time group to calculate the hours worked using the average-earnings calculation base and the selected vacation calculation method. These settings can be changed for each employee in the Employee average earned calculation methodform.

When an employee is granted basic annual or additional vacation, or other paid leave, you must create and post a vacation resolution. The Vacationsform is used to calculate the vacation payment. You can create the vacation calculation line manually or by using the staff vacation resolution. You can also use the Vacationsform to calculate compensation for an employee's unused vacation, or recalculate interrupted vacations.

The calculation method settings for the vacation calculation line are based on the general vacation calculation settings, except when the calculation method is changed for a specific employee, in which case the settings from the Employee average earned calculation methodform are used. The settings can be redefined for each individual vacation payment calculation.
