How do I add a new leave category?

Connected to a Payroll Platform

If you are connected to a payroll platform, as an admin or owner, you have the ability to add leave categories in Employment Hero by navigating to:

Payroll Settings --> Leave Categories

Simply click on the "Update From Payroll" button and this will pull in all the leave categories stored within your payroll platform into Employment Hero.

If you have removed any leave categories in your payroll system since the last update, then this will either disable or delete those leave categories in Employment Hero once you have completed the update. 

Once the update is complete, your employees will now be able to select from these categories when submitting a leave request.

Not connected to a Payroll Platform

If you are not connected to a payroll platform, then as an admin or owner, you still have the ability to add leave categories in Employment Hero by navigating to:

Payroll Settings --> Leave Categories

On this page, there is an option to add leave categories and edit or delete existing ones.

To add a leave category, simply click the "Add" button and type the name of your new leave category. Once you have added a leave category, your employees will now be able to select from these categories when submitting a leave request.
