Leave Manager - educos

By: Educos Vision Services  11-11-2011

Employees are entitled to paid time off work, paid public holidays and a certain predefined amount of sick days off. These vary greatly from company to company although the minimum conditions laid down in the Basic Conditions of Employment Act must be adhered to. Accumulation or abuse of leave has a tremendous cost implication to the company.

Vision Leave Manager allows the company to set up conditions for any number of different types of leave. Leave types may include, but are not limited to, Holidays, Annual Leave, Sick Leave, Family Responsibility Leave, Study Leave, Sporting Leave, Maternity Leave, Time Off to Vote etc. Each of the individual types of leave may have their own specific rules and conditions.

Vision will automatically control the flow of leave from Accrued Leave through to Accumulated and/or Non-Accumulated Leave according to the predefined rules specified. Companies are able to control very accurately, their leave provisions. Balances that are in excess of upper limits may be forfeited or warnings generated.

Vision has a unique way of handling the calculation of leave balances allowing for rules to be changed as often as is necessary even in the middle of a cycle. Vision will simply recalculate the correct balances according to new rules.

Absenteeism is one of the most serious discipline problems facing managers. Vision can calculate the cost of absenteeism according to any formula required. The Monday / Friday absence syndrome can be highlighted and investigated.

To assist in setting up the leave for new employees, leave templates may be defined per grouping which may be a grade, job category etc. These may also include increases that are due in the leave after a specified period of service. When the new employee joins, these rules are simply copied from the relevant template.

Leave transactions are never deleted, providing a full audit of leave whenever required. Employees querying their leave balances, may be provided with a complete history of both leave entitlements and leave taken leading them to their current balance.

It is important that employees take their annual requirement of time off. Vision allows easy enquiries and analysis of leave taken, leave due, leave to be forfeited etc.

Leave Allowances may be marked as dormant for a period in which an employee is not entitled to accumulate leave e.g. Maternity Absence or Suspended Action. Once the employee returns from leave, the relevant Allowance becomes active once again.
