Daybreak Canadian Payroll/Human Resources System Table of Contents

This module allows the user to add and/or modify employee booked-off days.

A pay code, date and hours are entered to indicate the reason why and when the employee will be booked-off.

When editing the hours the employee's Vacation Days Booked field will be adjusted if the pay code is flagged as 'Vacation Hours' and the date is within the Vacation Days year (as set in the division record of the employee). If the date is past the Vacation Days year's end date then the 'Future Year' total is adjusted. The employee's Eligible Days are obtained from the vacation rates table according to the employee's current vacation rate. The 'Unbooked Current' total is calculated by subtracting the booked days from the days eligible.

Options are available to retotal booked days or delete aged records.


Field Descriptions

Reason: select appropriate pay code (ie; Vacation, LOA). Use the look-up option F2 if needed.

Job: enter employee job code number (where he would normally be working during this period).

If an employee booked time off for a date but worked instead then the Used field would show as 'No'.
