Unpaid leave requests can be submitted by both admins and employees. Upon approval of the leave by all approvers, a deduction is automatically created on the payroll table.

When are unpaid leave deductions reflected on the payroll table

The deductions on payroll depend on when an unpaid leave request is created and the month requested for. Below are the different scenarios for each.

  1. Leave request is for the open payroll month - the deduction is created in the current open payroll month
  2. Leave request is for a future payroll month - the deduction is created in the future month when payroll is open for that month
  3. Leave request is for the current and future month (e.g. 15th of Feb - 7th of March) - two deductions are created, one in current open month and another in future open month
  4. Leave request is for multiple future months - the deductions are scheduled for future months as payroll opens for each month
  5. Leave request includes closed payroll months - As the month is closed, an email is sent to payroll manager(s) with relevant information so that they can create a deduction if it doesn’t exist already.
