Submit and approve a time off request for an employee

Create and approve a time off request on behalf of an employee before processing a pay run.

Before starting

How it works

  • Your employee's time off balance only includes completed requests.
  • Time off balances in your employee's Time Off tab reduce each time you approve a time off request.
  • The balances your employees see in their payslips are for completed time off requests included in a pay run.

Submit a time off request

Do you need to process statutory leave, such as maternity leave, for an employee? Add statutory leave and pay.
  1. In the Payroll menu, select Time Off.
  2. Click New, then select Time off.
  3. Select the employee, then select the time off type (eg Holiday).
  4. Enter details for the time off request.
  5. If you're not sure about the end date for your employee's leave, enter a date that falls far in the future. Once you know the end date, return to the time off request and update this field.
  6. Click Approve.
