Deducting Employee Hours when Applying Leave


You can reduce the amount an employees is paid when applying leave. This is particularly useful when applying leave without pay. You can reduce the amount of hours an employee is paid by following these simple steps:

  1. From the 'Business' menu, click 'Settings' and under Pay Run Settings click 'Leave Categories':


  2. Create a new leave category or select an existing leave category and under the “When leave is taken” option, select “Deduct hours from the employees primary pay category” and click save


Now when a leave application is applied to a pay run using this leave category, it will reduce the amount of hours for the employee by the amount of leave that has been applied.
