Who can request Leave or Sickness?

Applicable packages Leave Time HR Essentials HR Success


Required Roles Team Manager HR Manager Administrator ADU Manager


You can control who can request a Leave or Sickness absence on a team basis. The settings for Leave Requests and Sickness Reports are slightly different. For Leave, you can enable only the employee to submit their requests, or the employee and their manager. For Sickness reports, there are more options - employee only, employee and their manager, all members of their team, or all employees. This is to allow for those occasions where sickness absences are reported in a more ad hoc/pragmatic fashion that those with formal procedures to follow.


Leave Requests


Go to Organization > Teams. 


Select the team you wish to edit, click Leave Options & Approvals at the top and then go to Leave Requests. Scroll down to the Request Settings section.




NOTE: If you are requesting Leave on behalf of an employee in a different team, the request settings will need to be configured on your team, rather than theirs. This is because the system checks the settings based on the person submitting the request, rather than who the request is for.



Sickness Reports


Go to Organization > Teams. 


Select the team you wish to edit, click Leave Options & Approvals at the top and select go to Request Settings to select the option you would like from Who can Request? Click Save Changes.



NOTE: If you are requesting Sick on behalf of an employee in a different team, the request settings will need to be configured on your team, rather than theirs. This is because the system checks the settings based on the person submitting the request, rather than who the request is for.


Note that, in addition to the above there is a Backfill option for creating absences without them following the workflow approval process.
