British Columbia Sick and Stat tracking

      We are a medium sized non-profit in BC with 50 employees (regular, temp and casual status) who work a vast array of highly-changeable shifts. We provide services 24/7/365.

      Has anyone in BC found a payroll and/or HR solution that tracks the $ amounts owing for the new BC Sick Leave ? It is the same n/30 calculation as Stat Holidays, but with an annual limit and fluid capture dates.

      Bonus points for anything that integrates with Quickbooks.

      Thanks in advance

        How did you setup vacation entitlement and payments? It would be the same.

            Hi Susan –
            Vacation entitlement is calculated annually – based on a percentage. It’s fairly straight-forward & Quickbooks Desktop w/Payroll can keep track of that.

            Under BC Employment Standards, BC Sick Pay is an “average day’s wages”: gross wages (less overtime) earned in the 30 calendar days prior to the sick day, divided by the number of days on which wages were earned in that same 30 days. EEs are entitled to 5 days per calendar year and they do not roll over from year to year. The Average Days Wages calculation is the same as what is required for Stat Pay in BC – which I have been doing via Excel spreadsheet for years.

            We are considering moving from QB. I was wondering if anyone with a similar employee base has found a P/R or H/R software which would track the n/30 calculation for the two items which require it. I presume it would mean that employee daily hours/earnings would need to be entered in real-time – perhaps through an employee timeclock portal, or as part of the P/R processing tasks.

            Thanks very much

            I am very much interested in this topic as well. I have looked into multiple software options and have yet to find one that can do this. All the software companies I have asked say “No that is not a feature we can add because X,Y,Z” (all overcomable issues if they really wanted to figure it out).

                Hi Nicole –
                Thank you for your reply. Hopefully a solution will be offered if enough folks ask. The search continues…
