Submit Time-Off Requests

Employees can submit time-off requests using the Time Off Planner.

Time-off types identify the time that employees are absent from work into categories, such as vacation time, jury duty, and bereavement. Balance information as of the current date is shown on the right-hand panel.

To ensure that the request does not exceed the employee's current balance, requests are validated against the employee's balance as of the date of the request rather than the current date.
