What is relevant daily pay?

Relevant Daily Pay (definition)

The Relevant Daily Pay refers to the amount the employee would’ve earned if they'd worked that day, including any additional earnings such as commission. An employee should always be paid their Relevant Daily Pay for DBAPS leave (Domestic Violence, Bereavement, Alternative, Public Holidays, Sick) if the RDP is known.

In PayHero, if the employee has a Work Pattern set with standard hours per day, these hours will be considered the Relevant Daily Pay and the employee’s pay will reflect this  normal rate. However, this can be adjusted in payroll or the Average Daily Pay can be used instead. 

Relevant Daily Pay

FYI: Annual leave is calculated with the highest of the Ordinary Weekly Pay Per Day or Average Weekly Pay Per day, not Relevant Daily Pay.
