Managing time off accruals with ease

There are many, many different ways to manage time off.

Take how time off is accrued, for example.

In a lot of companies, a set amount of time off is added to an employee’s balances on some regular schedule – say, 2.5 hours of vacation time is added each week. Or, maybe time off is added in a block at the beginning of the year, like 5 days of sick time available on January 1st.

But, these standard approaches don’t work in all cases. Consider these examples:

  • Some states require workers to accrue 1 hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked

  • Employees sometimes work irregular schedules and amounts, so accruing time off at a fixed rate each week doesn’t make sense

These more complex scenarios can be difficult to manage manually, and even Replicon hasn’t always handled these types of requirements out of the box.

But, our new time off platform makes it faster and easier for us to add new rules to Replicon. So in the past year or so, we’ve been taking advantage of that flexibility, and have added a whole bunch of new rules.

Among them are these new rules that address the non-standard scenarios mentioned above:

  • Accruals based on hours worked rule

  • Percentage of hours worked in a timesheet period / leave year rules

With these rules, amounts accrued are proportionate to the number of hours worked, rather than based on a fixed schedule. This helps keep things simple when allotting time off to those with irregular schedules, or when legislation calls for accruals based on hours worked. These rules differ from each other in how you define that ratio, and in when accruals become available.

So, you can choose which rule works for your situation, right out of the box.
