Annual Leave Calculator

Use this calculator to work out annual leave entitlement for your employees.

All employees are entitled to a minimum of four weeks paid annual leave per year. The exact number of days/hours will depend on an employee's working pattern, and what a "week" is for them.

To use the calculator:

  • Select the relevant work pattern from the dropdown - either regular days/hours or on a roster
  • Then either enter the number of days/hours worked, or the roster pattern
  • Click 'calculate'


Manage your employees' leave entitlements - everyone needs time away from work to recharge and for specific family situations.
