Why would a company give annual leave in hours?

A company may give annual leave in hours to accommodate employees who work shifts of varying sizes. This approach acknowledges that employees may have different shift lengths, such as 8-hour shifts, 10-hour shifts, or even longer durations. By providing leave in hours, employees working different shift lengths can still receive an equitable amount of leave based on the actual time worked.

This ensures that all employees have the opportunity to take time off proportional to their work commitments, regardless of the length of their shifts.

A company may give annual leave in hours to offer employees more flexibility in managing their time off. It allows employees to take leave in smaller increments or adjust their work hours for a shorter period.

It also helps track leave accurately and ensures fair allocation across different employment types. Converting leave to hours can integrate with payroll systems, making calculations and deductions easier. Lastly, it aligns with legal requirements in some jurisdictions.
