Why "First Year AL Entitlement round up to integer"?


According to the Concise guide to the employment ordinance Hong Kong, Chapter 4,  if an employee has not been employed for 12 months in the common leave year, the employer should calculate his leave entitlement on a pro rata basis, and any fraction of a day resulting from the calculation should be counted as a full day's leave.
You can uncheck the First Year AL Entitlement round up to integer (for Calendar Year Entitlement) check box in Leave Module Setup to disable this behavior.
