What is average daily pay?

Average Daily Pay (definition)

Average Daily Pay is the daily average of an employee's earnings over the previous 52 weeks. If it's impossible or impractical to determine the Relevant Daily Pay for an employee, or if the employee’s daily pay varies within the pay period when the holiday or leave falls, the ADP can be used instead. 

For employees with no clear hours set in their Work Pattern, PayHero will default to using their Average Daily Pay, based on their 52 week pay history. However, this can be changed in your payroll system if you do know the Relevant Daily Pay.
