Workers in France accrue rights to paid holidays (called congés payés and abbreviated CP) in several different categories:
- CP1 In Progress Rights:
- Option to accrue 25 or 30 days per year on a monthly basis (2.08 days/month or 2.5 days per month).
- CP1 rights are typically not available for worker to use until after the accumulated value has been transferred into CP2.
- CP2 Acquired Rights:
- Value of CP1 accumulated after year 1 generally available for worker to use in year 2.
- Generally available for worker to use to take paid holidays.
- Additional rights can be granted to worker in this category.
- CP3 Remainder Rights: Value of CP2 remaining unused. [Not currently supported].
Rights accrue at the end of the month and are reset annually on June 1st. Timesheet Mobile provides support for basic CP1/CP2 accruals, deduction and balance calculations and transfer of those values to payroll each month.
Paid Holiday Rights Set Up
Manually Adjust CP1
In some cases it may be necessary to manually adjust CP1 to reflect rights accumulated for workers added mid-year or for other contractual reasons. See below for how to manually adjust CP1. At the end of each month, the additional accrued value will be added to CP1.
Grant Additional CP2 Rights
The CP2 value can be adjusted similarly to CP1 as shown in the section above. Workers may also be granted additional CP2 rights attributable to several categories: 1) Exceptional, 2) Maternity, 3) Split Rights as shown below.
Payroll Information Transferred
Once properly configured, accumulated CP1 and CP2 rights, grants, and running balances are sent with each month's payroll. The following information is sent with payroll for the end of each month for all workers set up to accrue rights balances:
- CP1 Rights at the end of the period
- Legal CP1 Rights at the end of the period
- Number of paid holidays deducted from CP1
- CP1 Balance = CP1 Rights - Paid Holidays taken from CP1
- CP2 Rights at the end of the period
- Legal CP2 Rights at the end of the period
- Additional CP2 Rights granted in the period
- CP2 Balance = CP2 Rights + Additional CP2 Rights Granted - Paid Holidays taken from CP2
- All necessary year-end rights and balance adjustments
First Year Worker with 25 Days per Year - No Paid Holiday
In this example, a first-year worker accumulates CP1 rights monthly and is not granted any paid holiday days, resulting in a total of 25 days CP1 rights that transfer to CP2 at the end of the year.
First Year Worker with 25 Days per Year - Paid Holiday Granted
In this example, a first-year worker accumulating CP1 is granted 2 paid holiday days in November and 1 in March. The grants reduce the CP1 balance and reduce the amount transferred to CP2 at the end of the year.
Second (or Later Year) Worker with 25 Days per Year - Additional Rights and Paid Holidays
In this example, a worker who has been with the company for more than one year and has accumulated CP2 rights is granted additional rights in July (1-day Maternity), August (1 day Split), and February (2 days Exceptional) and who takes 20 days of paid holiday in September.
Second (or Later Year) Worker with 30 Days per Year - Paid Holidays
In this example, a worker who has been with the company for more than one year and has accumulated CP2 rights takes paid holidays (15 in July, 5 in August, 2 in September, 2 in November, and 4 in December) thereby reducing their CP2 balance accordingly.
