Accruals By Hours Worked Got an Upgrade!

The By Hours Worked accrual rate is one that some employers must use to satisfy state and local sick time requirements. The laws that require employers to offer sick time also mandate the way in which that time accrues.

It is also a useful accrual rate for part time or temporary hourly employees because it helps keep employees from earning too much time off at times when they may not be working a regular schedule.
