Manually adjust an employee’s leave

You can change an employee's leave balance manually if you need to make corrections or changes.

How you adjust leave will depend on when the leave was taken:

  • If the leave was taken fewer than 8 pay periods ago, you can edit the leave balance in the employee’s payslip. This ensures there is a record of the changes made.
  • If the leave was taken more than 8 pay periods ago, you’ll have to make the adjustment directly to the employee’s leave balances. However, there is no history of this change.

Adjust an employee’s leave balance in their payslip

  1. Create a new draft pay run. This could be when you normally process a pay run or you can adjust the payment in an unscheduled pay.
  2. Before you post the pay run, click the employee's name to open their payslip.
  3. If it's an unscheduled pay run, remove all Earnings, Deductions or Reimbursement lines so that the payslip has a 0.00 balance.
  4. Scroll down to the leave section and click Add Leave Line.
  5. Choose the Leave Type, ensure that Calculate Leave Accrual is set to No, then click OK.
  6. In the Hours field, enter the amount of leave to adjust the balance.
    • To increase their current balance, add a positive amount. For example, 7.6 to increase their current balance by 7.6 hours.
    • To reduce their current balance, add a negative amount. For example, -7.6 to reduce their current balance by 7.6 hours.
  7. Save and post the pay run.
