Frequently asked questions
- What is leave management?
Leave management usually refers to how a business handles planned absences, like an employee taking a week off to sail around the Bahamas. However, depending on the business, it may cover other kinds of leave as well. Leave management can include policies around leave entitlements and how leave is approved, as well as procedures for covering shifts. Leave management software is key for making this process as easy as possible.
- What is leave management software?
Leave management software simplifies all the admin that usually comes with employee leave. It saves everyone time and makes the sentence “I’m planning a vacation” less stressful for both managers and staff. Leave management software allows employers to view, edit, and manage their team’s leave, while streamlining their ability to find people who can cover shifts.
- What types of leave can I manage in Deputy?
Deputy’s leave management solution comes pre-loaded with the most common types of leave, but you can create custom leave entitlements to match the requirements of any business. If you want, you can set up paid Study Leave for all your casual employees, accruing at one hour for every thirty hours worked. Or you can give a full-time employee four days of paid Puppy Leave when they get a new pet. It’s up to you.
- Can you set different leave accrual rates?
Absolutely. Once you set up the leave type, you can customize the accrual rate to suit your needs - and our leave management software handles the calculations to save you the headache.
- Can employees set regular days they are not available?
Yes, if a team member cannot work on a certain day or at a certain time, they can easily lodge the details in Deputy via desktop, smartphone, or tablet. Then, when a manager uses Deputy to create their team’s schedule in minutes, they can clearly see who is and is not available at that time.
- Can managers automatically block leave requests for important dates?
Yes. In Deputy, you can automatically block leave requests or unavailability for certain days. This is handy for busy weeks when you need all hands on deck.
