Employment Hero allows employees to lodge their leave requests online and allows managers and admins ways to organise leave.
Please note, if you cannot submit leave for another employee, you will not see the Employee selection as per the image above.
To add a leave request as an employee:
1. Go to Leave Requests
2. Click on Request Leave
3. You will then be prompted to enter the details of your leave:
Leave Category - Your employer has created a list of leave categories e.g. annual leave, sick leave. If you are unsure of which to pick, please enquire internally.
Start Date - The day on which your leave starts.
End Date - The day on which your leave ends. If you are taking 1 day of leave, this is the same as your Start Date
Comment - Your manager will see this comment if you want to describe your leave request
Add document - You can add files to support your leave request. For example you may want to attach a doctor's certificate for sick leave.
Hours - You can select how many hours of leave to take on each day you have requested leave.
Multiple leave requests can also be submitted per day with the following limitations:
Total hours - The total hours per day for leave requests cannot exceed 24
Leave categories - Multiple leave requests of the same leave request cannot be submitted; e.g., 2 annual leave requests in one day
If your organisation is connected to Employment Hero Payroll, Keypay, Quickbooks Online or Xero, you will also be able to view your leave balance.
Projected Leave - This provides an estimate of how much leave you will have accrued at the start date of your leave request. This is an only an estimation and should be used for informational purposes only. To get an accurate leave balance please consult your payroll administrator.
Once you have selected a leave category and a start date, your projected leave at this date will be displayed. This is an estimate of how much leave you will have accrued. Please note, all leave accruals will have future approved leave requests deducted from the total balance.
At this time, projected leave will only be available to organisations that are connected to Employment Hero Payroll and KeyPay related payroll systems.
