In accordance with subsection 69.2.1, where an employee is entitled to an allowance for less than a complete calendar month, the allowance shall be calculated using the following methodology:

R x E


R is the annual rate of allowance,

C is the number of compensation days in a year, and

E is the total number of days of entitlement in that month, including:

(a) each compensation day on which the employee is on duty or on authorized leave with pay; and

(b) each day authorized by competent authority as a general holiday with pay, unless it falls within a period of leave without pay or immediately precedes the first day of employment or immediately follows the last day of employment.


For the purposes of "C", the number of compensation days in a given year is 260.88 days.
