Creating Absence Accrual Patterns and Rules

Absence Accrual offers extensive absence and vacation/ PTO recording options by defining groups of settings that can be linked to Policies or Employment Records. Each group of settings, called an Absence Accrual Pattern, uses rules to define parameters for accruals and limits for each type of absence recorded in your organization.

Policy linking enables absence management to be tailored to country, region, or other organizational grouping.

Employment Record linking enable bespoke absence management for individual roles while retaining generic settings for the rest of the organisation.

Absence Accrual Patterns can be defined for each of the following requirements:

  • Annual accrual, as used widely for Vacation/PTO.
  • Continuous accrual, as used widely in Australia for Vacation/PTO.
  • Accrual from the previous year, commonly used in Belgium for Vacation/PTO.
  • Limited over a rolling period, used in America for FMLA leave.
  • Limited over a year, used for some types of sickness absence.
  • Limited number of occurrences, used for some types of sickness absence.
  • Parental leave
