- FA/AS/LI (Unclassified) Leave Reports
- Absence balance updates
- Payroll processing
- Takes that are entered in other increments than 4 or 8 will round according to policy. The user should not input values other than 4 or 8 hour for full time staff.
- Using up a residual balance may not be in a 4 or 8 hour increment. Therefore you would need the override in these situations. In no circumstance should anything other than a .25 hour increment be used.
