The amount of time off you’ve been allowed for each type of time off is based on the time off policies assigned to you. You can view details of each policy that is currently in effect.
Your policy settings are subject to change at any time. If you have questions about your time off allotment, talk to your supervisor.
To view details of your time off policies:
A Time Off Balances table displays.
The details of the current policy for that time off type are shown.
Depending on which version of our time off system you are using, you will see different fields for the policy details.
If you are using our new system, you will see the policy name and effective date above the box.
This option shows…
The starting balance as of the effective date of the policy.
The Start With field indicates whether the balance was set to a specific amount, or whether the remaining balance from the previous policy was carried over, up to the maximum amount specified.
The amount of time off that is accrued on a regular basis.
The Yearly Entitlement specifies how much time off you will accrue for the whole year. The entitlement is distributed throughout the year, based on the accrual period. For example, if the Yearly Entitlement is 15 days and the Accrual Period is Monthly, you will receive 1.25 days each month.
Balance Limit and Reset
The maximum balance that is allowed for the time off type, as well as whether the balance is periodically reset to a specific amount.
If a maximum is specificed and your balance is exceeds it, you will not accrue any additional time off. Accruals will restart once your balance falls below the maximum.
The Reset Type indicates whether your balance will be reset to a specific amount, or if you'll be able to carry over some of your previous balance. For example, if Reset Type is set to Carry Up To and Reset Amount is set to 5 days, your balance will be reset to a maximum of 5 days. If, prior to the reset, your balance is 7 days, it will reset to 5 days. If your balance is 3 days, it will reset to 3 days.
If you are using the older version of our time off system, Policy Details is shown above the box.
