More advanced workflow configurations are also available where administrators can define unlimited workflow approval paths.


Great Flexibility

HRDirector deliver pre-configured statutory leave on top of which users can also configure as many additional leave types as necessary in accordance with simple or complicated leave policies. Leave can be given upfront or accrued in units such as days or hours. More advanced accrual definitions can be based on length of service or salary grade.


Forfeiture rules are flexible and can be configured to drop off completely, or shift leave to different leave buckets based on anniversary date or a fixed date for all employees.


Advanced settings allow users to restrict negative leave, only accrue leave for new employees if they joined before a certain day of the month, the ability to toggle mandatory attachments and much more.


Seamless Integration with Payroll

Automated accurate payroll leave provision calculations are fed directly via the leave administration suite where any fluctuation in employee leave balances translate into accurate provision costing for budget purposes. Upon termination, automated leave encashment options can be utilised where the user can firstly, view the amount of leave pay, perform the necessary pay-out, and reduce the leave balance accordingly – all in a single action.

Vast flexibility is also available with regards to defining leave pay income.
