Before reading this guide

We recommend reviewing the Requesting leave guide first to be aware of the process to be undertaken by the employees

Reviewing Leave

Once an employee has made a Leave Request, the manager of that employee has the ability to Approve or Decline the leave.

A Leave Request will be colour blue if an action is required, or gray if the Leave Request has already been reviewed.

Click Review to see all the review options.

It is not critical that the hours the employee has requested to be accurate, what's important is to ensure the date and time range is accurate.

When payroll is processed the hours will be calculated using the employees Roster and Timesheet data, not the hours requested by the employee.

Review the Leave and Public Holidays guide to learn how the hours are calculated.

Somethings to consider when approving leave are:

There are 3 stacks of information to help review a Leave Request
