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 avail him/herself of that leave type.

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

Leave Entitlements are configured in Payroll & Leave > Leave > Leave Entitlements. They can also be added from the Employee screen as presented in the Employee Leave Entitlements help page.
