Most companies allow employees' unused annual leaves from the previous period (i.e. Year 2019) to be brought over to the next period (i.e. Year 2020).
If you are an Admin who has just joined the company or has taken over the role of your predecessor, you may be wondering on how to verify the number of carry forward leaves in the Leave Settings.
For example, if an employee has 5 days of carry forward leaves (from 2019) in the current period (Year 2020), here's how you can verify the settings:
Under Leave > Manage Leave Policies > Leave Settings > Leave Types > Annual Leave, scroll down the page until you see "Unused Leave..." > "for up to a limit of...".
If a Leave Grade was set up, do check Leave Grade instead as Leave Grade settings always precedes general Annual Leave settings (under Leave Types).
