# Tip 1: How to calculate compensation for unused vacation days

Some categories of employees cannot be involved in work during**holidays** and pay out*compensation*. These include those specialties that are associated with work in tense conditions. For example, pilots, flight attendants, dispatchers, etc.

Other employees can be brought to work on days**holidays** on production needs or on their own. They must have written consent. Compensation can be paid in 14 days. The rest of the days the employee must be on vacation and pay*compensation* instead**holidays** can not.

Compensation is calculated from the average earnings for 12 months. It is necessary to add all the earned sums from which income tax was withheld, divide by 365 and multiply by the number of days**holidays**. for which compensation is paid.

When an employee leaves, compensation is paid for all the required days.**holidays** based on the amount earned for the 12 months that were the last before the dismissal.

If the month has worked more than 15 calendar days, then the compensation is paid for the entire month, less than 15 is not paid.

If the employee worked at the company for less than 1 year, the calculation is made for the actual work period. To calculate, take the amount earned is actually taxed, and split it actually worked to calendar days.

If the employee has worked for less than one month, compensation for the vacation is not paid.

To calculate the number of days prescribed for the payment of compensation for 28 divided by 12. The resulting number will be compensated for one month spent more than 15 calendar days. It is multiplied by the number of work months for which it is reimbursed and multiplied by average daily salary for 12 months.

Compensation should be paid in full if the employee has worked for the company 11 months.

If the employee leaves the company, then the company shall on the last working day to pay him compensation for the main or additional leave, which he did not use for work all the time. This also applies to those who work part-time. The amount of compensation is calculated as normal holiday pay.

In the calculation and payment of compensation for unused vacation accountants should be guided by article 139 of the Labour code of the Russian Federation. This article refers to the calculation of the average wages of the employee. It is based on the average wage, calculated the compensation for unused vacation.

To calculate the average wage of the employee is necessary to sum up all his earnings for the last 12 months (the month in which the employee retires, in this period is not included) and divide first by 12 (number of months) and then by 29.4 (the average number of days in the month). The result is a number, identical to the average daily wage of the employee. To calculate compensation for unused vacation, multiply the resulting number by the number of vacation days that were not used.

Standard vacation is 28 calendar days. If the employee worked for the company for 11 months and did not take a vacation, then he receives full payment for all 28 days. The same rule applies if the employee works for a long time, but this year on holiday never left. On average 1 month for 2.33 day holiday. If the employee worked less than 11 months, respectively, multiply the of 2.33 on the number of worked months. If necessary, the number of months rounded in favor of the employee. The result is the number of vacation days that the company is obliged to compensate.
