Time Off Types

Overview

Every time off request created must have a time off type. The type of time off communicates why the employee is taking time off.

The time off request feature in When I Work may not fully align with your employer’s rules for time off. For more information on how your workplace uses the time off requests feature, refer back to your employer’s policies.

Considerations

If you have employee access privileges, time off may be restricted based on your employer’s settings.

Your employer can:

  • Turn off time off requests to prevent you from creating them in When I Work.
  • Prevent you from requesting time off on specific dates.
  • Require that you request time off a certain number of days in advance.
  • Limit the number of paid hours per day.

Managers and Admins can make these policy changes in the Time Off Requests section of the General Settings.
