This article will explain how to add and process leave in Wagemaster. 

Adding Leave 

When an employee requests leave, the best practice is to add the leave to Wagemaster as soon as possible.  This ensures employee leave records and accruals balances are correct at all times.

There are two different ways to add leave to employees in Wagemaster.  The recommended process is to add the leave prior to generating a payrun.  You can also add leaves when you are processing payroll. 

  • There are lots of leave types available in Wagemaster.  
  • If you create a completely new award that is not based on an existing award in your database, it will have no leave types by default, and you will need to add them. 
  • To add a new type of leave to an award or remove a type of leave you will need to click on Add/Delete Leave as per the article linked here: Adding A New Leave Type In Wagemaster
