We recently release a new feature for Leave Management that will allow employees to apply for unpaid leave.
The feature can be turned on by the account admin in the Leave Management Settings
Once the setting is on the employee will have a ability to say if this is a paid or unpaid leave.
If they select unpaid leave their leave balance will not be deducted for that leave request however for payroll we will treat it as an unpaid leave and deductions would apply for monthly paid employees.
If they do not select unpaid leave then the leave will be treated as a normal paid leave request.
Note: Normal Leave request validations still apply. You can not have overlapping leave requests approved. You do still need to state the leave type and the reason for the leave.
