Watch this video to learn how you can manage employees' vacation time and sick leave accruals with HR software.
Employee Leave Benefit
Vacation time and sick leave are common benefits for many employers. Typically, they offer their employees a set number of paid vacation and sick days a year for the first couple of years, then increase the amount of time off they accrue based on the length of their employment.
Sick Time and Vacation Policy
Employee seniority often plays a role in time-off accruals as most companies reward their long-term employees with additional days off. It’s also common to have trial periods for new employees and to enforce a “use-it-or-lose-it” rule, so employees can’t store months of time off to use all at one time. Your company may start their accrual year at the beginning of the calendar year while other companies may set the employees’ anniversary date as the start of the new accrual year. You may even have a couple of different time-off policies: one for exempt employees and one for non-exempt employees, for example. While it may sound confusing, it is quite simple now that the old days of keeping several spreadsheets for each employee’s paid time off records have been replaced with innovative technology - personnel software.
Time Off Work Deductions
The convenience of personnel software saves time. The software automatically accrues paid time off. The only responsibility of the employer is to enter a time off work deduction when the employee takes time away from work. The software will then take the deduction and calculate the remaining balance, always keeping an up-to-date account of an employee’s paid vacation time or sick leave amount. It’s a simple addition to the workplace and one that saves a tremendous amount of time.
