  • An employee must always be linked to a policy. Read more about how a policy is linked to an employee click here!

A policy divides your employees into groups:

  • Full-time employees (with or without payment for overtime hours)

  • Part-time employees (5 days working week or with a fixed weekly day off)

  • Hourly paid employees (with or without paid breaks)

  • External employees

  • Students

  • Country

  • Company

Create a new policy

When you need to create a new policy for an employee group, you have two options:

  1. Select a country to get a preconfigured policy that matches the basic settings for the country's vacation and absence rules.

  2. Copy settings from a previously created policy that already has the desired settings.

A new policy is saved with rules and settings for the employee group:

  • Monthly earning or Yearly earning of vacation days

  • Earning and spending other vacation (in hours or days)

  • Access to types of leave

  • Rules for registration of sick day and child sick

  • Public holidays booked for an employee group's calendar

  • Earning of Hour bank hours

  • Earning Day bank days (custom registration type with meter)

  • Access to flextime registration (registration of daily working hours linked to Hour bank and standard working hours)

  • Access to registration of overtime

  • Standard working hours per day and week

  • Standard calendar/working week (Monday-Friday or Sunday-Thursday)
