Leave general settings

Organisations offer different kinds of leave, with paid leave being the most common leave type. For example; vacation leave, general sick leave, and holiday leave. Although employers may not be required to provide such fringe benefits, they may be legally obligated to comply with any policies or practices that grant leave benefit, either paid or unpaid, to employees.

2. Define your leave cycle basis

A leave cycle is the 12 month period on which time off is calculated and granted to employees in accordance with their employment contract. There are 2 types of leave cycle to choose from:
  
Leave cycle Description Renewal
 Fiscal   year   1. Calendar year
 Follows standard calendar, starting from
 1st January - 31st December for all employees

 2. Custom year
 Follows custom 12 month period you select,   starting on the same date for all employees
 Example: 1st September - 31 August
 The leave cycle will begin on the 1st of the   calendar month
 Join   date   Follows custom 12 month period, starting on   the join date for each employee
 Example: 10th September - 9th September
 The leave cycle is determined by an   employee's join date and will be refreshed   according to his/her work anniversary date
