Are you unsure of the types of Leave that employees are entitled to? Rest easy! Talenox pre-loads required leave types in accordance to your country's labour laws.

Preset Leave Types

To view the Leave types available, head to Leave > Manage my leave policies > Settings > 'Leave Types' tab where you will be able to view the different preset leave types (set-up by default) available in Talenox:

We recommend you follow the pre-loaded settings unless your company leave policies differ from statutory guidelines.

Certain leave types are made available to an employee with respect to their Profile information (e.g. Maternity/Paternity Leave requires an employee's Next Of Kin details to be entered for their spouse). Click into a leave type for detailed information on eligibility, entitlement and settings.

Custom Leave Types

You may create custom leave types that is offered to all employees.

To set-up Custom leave types (e.g. Study Leave) for your employees, head to Leave > Manage my leave policies > Settings > 'Leave Types' tab > New Leave Type:

There are two generic templates that can be used flexibly and renamed:

  • General Leave - suitable for leave that requires proration from hire/resign date, with option for rollover of balance and increment with complete years of service.

  • Recurring Time Off - suitable for leave that is given in fixed quantity on a recurring basis (replenished weekly/monthly/yearly) without any proration. Common examples are Compassionate leave and Flexible time off.
