Accrual methods differ across the organizations as it is set by employers. Here are the common accrual methods followed:

  • Fixed accrual: Employees will earn fixed hours for the entire year.
    • Beginning of the year accrual: Employers can set the fixed accrual to happen at the beginning of the year, i.e., January 1.
    • Anniversary accrual: Employers may set the fixed accrual to happen at the employee’s work anniversary date.
  • Pay period accrual: Employees will earn hours based on the hours worked during a pay period.

Some states have separate laws for accrual methods. Employers must comply with their state laws if they have one.

Be it any type of accrual, the employees need to know how much hours they have used, accrued, available for the pay period. You can simply choose to mention this information on employee pay stubs — mandatory in some states like California — using 123PayStubs.
