Payroll platform: Managing leave categories

Overview

Leave categories are the means through which your employees can submit time off against a pre-defined category. These pre-defined categories allow you to track what type of leave your employees are taking and the balance they have accrued, giving your organisation the means to manage and report on employee leave within your business.

Th Leave Category feature allows you to create a new leave category, determine what type it will fall under, the payment setup and what leave loading rates will apply. This feature also allows you to edit any of the information if it changes and delete a category if it is no longer relevant.

Important

Any changes made to your leave categories will need syncing over to your HR platform. To read further details on how to undertake this, refer to the following article.
