Different companies have different type of leaves, separate from the mandatory leaves specified by local government bodies. Payboy allows you to customize different categories of leaves used by your company - this is known as Leave Types.

Correctly setting up your Leave Types is important as they will affect:

  • Automatic calculation of the number of working days for an employee
  • Calculation of an employee's salary during payroll generation
