Getting Started Part 3: Leave Management

Before You Begin

There are 4 key aspects that need completing before proceeding:

  • You have loaded all required employees into Employment Hero.
  • For each employee within Employment Hero, you have specified their location and manager.
  • Have a list of all outstanding leave requests that need uploading into Employment Hero.
  • Have decided whether to use Employment Hero's Two Level Leave function. 

Where Should I Begin

Public Holidays

You can use the Public Holidays function to create a public holiday calendar tailored to your business and the states and/or territories you operate within.

You can select from Employment Hero's pre-created public holiday templates and customise it to suit your business needs, or you can create your own public holiday calendar from scratch. 

Warning: If there are no public holidays setup within your organisation, then when an employee submits leave over a public holiday, Employment Hero will not recognise the day as a public holiday. This means the leave will not default to 0 hours for the leave request.

To understand how this section works, we recommended reading this article.

Things I should Consider
