Submit a leave request for an employee

Create and approve a leave request for an employee before running a pay, if they didn't submit them in time or if they don't have access to My Payroll (the employee portal).

You must have Payroll Admin access to create a leave request on behalf of other employees.
  1. Go to Payroll, then click Leave.

  2. Click New Leave Request.

  3. Select the employee and enter all the details.

    The employee's leave balance excludes current requests and all unprocessed leave.

  4. Click Approve.

Xero will process the leave in the next pay run.

If you have already set up a draft pay run, click on Reset Payslip from within the employee's draft payslip to ensure that the additional leave request is included.
