What are average weekly earnings?

Average Weekly Earnings (definition)

Average Weekly Earnings is the total gross earnings over the past 12 months, divided by the number of weeks worked. PayHero uses this calculation to reach the Average Weekly Pay Per Day, which is the rate used to calculate Annual Leave. If the Ordinary Weekly Pay Per Day is higher, that rate is used instead during payroll processing.
