Every time off request created must have a time off type. The type of time off communicates why the employee is taking time off.
Things to know before you begin
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 account holders can make these policy changes in the Time Off Requests section of App Settings.
Time off types
When I Work offers four types of time off:
|Time off that the employee is not paid for.
|Time off that the employee is paid for.
|Time off for illness or emergency.
|Time off for a holiday.
|Unpaid||Time off that the employee is not paid for.
|Paid (PTO)||Time off that the employee is paid for.
|Sick||Time off for illness or emergency.
|Holiday||Time off for a holiday.
