What is Leave Entitlement?

Leave Entitlement allows you to assign Leave Types to an employee, including total hours and remaining balance. By assigning Leave Types to an employee, you are granting that employee the right to apply for that leave type.

What are Leave Entitlements used for?

Leave Entitlements determine how many leave days an employee is entitled to take during the year.
