If you want to make a time off policy be labour based, and have employees accrue time off based on hours they have worked or their employment status (FTE hours), this can be set up in the settings of a time off policy.

⚠️CAUTION: These steps create a labour-based policy. After you create it, some settings in this policy are unable to be edited. Make sure you have everything how you want for this policy before you click Create or Save.

  1. Click your name on the top right, then click Settings.

  2. On the settings menu click Time off, then click Policies.

  3. Select either for every 1 hour logged and accrue or for every 1 day logged and accrue in the third drop down.


  4. Then enter the amount you want to allocate, specifying in either days or hours.

  5. Select how regularly the allowance is allocated. For example, annually or every three months etc.

  6. Select to determine working days and working hours on calendar settings, this will use an employee's employment status.

  7. Enter the default working hours.

  8. Select whether weekends and/or public holidays count as workdays.

  9. Once you have finished applying all your other time off policy settings, scroll to the bottom and click Create or Save.
