I am trying to construct an Access database that will allow for the calculation of vacation days accrued for employees using the criterion below

Status = Established
under $25,692 per year = 21 days (1.75 per month)
$25,692 and under $35,544 per year = 28 days (2.3 per month)
$35,544 per year and over = 35 days (2.9 per month)

Status = Un-established
1 - 2 years service = 14 working days
3 - 5 years service = 21 working days
6 - 10 years service = 28 working days
over 10 years service= 35 working days

Status = Contracted
under $24,000 per year = 15 working days
$24,000 to $41,988 per year = 20 working days
over $41,988 per year = 25 working days

It is hoped that the employee status and salary would be somehow used to determine the vacation days they are entitled to. The accrued days will also be deducted from holidays granted to employees and recorded in a calculated filed to ensure an accurate balance is kept. Can anyone help?

The basic staff table has the following fields:
Staff_ID
Name
Division
Salary
Status
Start Date
