    Math Question

    Ok, I'm no math wiz - that's for sure.
    My job has called upon me to become the Payroll guy (small company).
    Now I'm learning QuickBooks.
    I've come to a part where I need to calculate\enter for accrued vacation.
    To calculate 1 week vacation a year for an employee working 40 hrs each week - how many min's per hour worked would that come to - to do that?

    I appreciate any help\answer on this.

    Thanks in advance....
    For God, Family and Country!

    52 weeks in a year at 40 hours a week = 2080 hours

    2080 hours work = 40 hours of vacation

    52 hours of work = 1 hour of vacation

    Give them an extra hour of vacation every time they buy you lunch. You'll probably break even.

    Not to make this too complex, but in order for the numbers above to jive, the employees will have to earn vacation while on vacation. This shouldn't be too big a deal, as most places of business (and Uncle Sugar) compute it this way.

    By pgrass's numbers, one hour of work should earn you 1.15385 minutes (or .01923 hours) of vacation.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    that checks by my math too.

    2080 hours of work in a year * 1.153847 minutes per hour = 2399.99 minutes of vacation / 60 = 40.0002933333 repeating hours of vacation

    51 weeks (because they are on vacation for a week) so 51 hr per 1 hr of vacation.


    Unless you count all the paid holidays.

    Since I work for Uncle Sugar I forget that some people don't earn leave while on leave.

    Depends on your works policy I guess, you would also have to factor in holidys etc....

    I can't stand to ignore this........LOL

    If your company uses a 2,088 hour year:

    There are 52 weekends in a year, thus 104 weekend days;
    365 days a year less 104 weekend days equals 261 work days;
    261 times 8 equals 2,088 hours of work each year;
    40 vacation hours per year;
    40 divided by 2,088 equals .019157;
    thus for every one hour worked, they earn .019157 hour of vacation.

    Proof:

    2,088 hours in a year times .019157 equals 40 hours

    Include the vacation hours (vacation time) in the formula to avoid needing to change your automatic accrual when they take vacation time.

    I'll go home now.........

    Clear as mud. Right?

    Isn't there 365.25 days in a year? Every four years we get another day.
