Leave Set Up For Probationary Employee (Existing User From TimeTec TA)

Leave Set Up For Probationary Employee (Existing User From TimeTec TA)


Probationary employees are newly recruited workers that are in probationary/trial period, which commonly last for three months, six months or up to a year. During this probationary period, the leave allocation for the probationary employee will differ from the normal worker, until they have been confirmed by the management. 

In order to ease future transition from probationary to confirmed employee, we suggest for organisations to set leave settings the same as new employees, but limit their leave application. Below is the guide on the settings.

1. Add user in TimeTec Leave OR if the user has been added in other TimeTec solution, e.g: TimeTec Attendance, assign user to TimeTec Leave

  1. Assign user to applications

  • Go to USER > Manage User > Assign user to applications

  • Select the user > Submit

  1. Assign user to Policy

  • Go to Leave Settings > Leave Policy

  • Select Assign Policy > Select User > Assign

  1. Assign user into Service Accrual

  • Go to Leave Setting > Service Accrual

  • Select the service accrual > Select User > Assign

  1. Set the User Approver

  • Go to USER > Manage User > Leave Setting

  • Go to Approval > Select leave approval type > Assign user leave approver

  1. Disable the “Request Enable” for the user

  • Inside the Leave Settings module, go to the Allowance tab 

  • At the Annual Leave, click on Edit, then disable the “Request Enable” option for the user, and Submit. This will disable the leave from being applied by the user. 

  • With this setting, probationary employees can still view their leave allocation, but can only apply leave for the allowed leave type, e.g: Sick Leave. 

Note: After the user is confirmed, you may enable the “Request Enable” option to allow the user to apply leave. With this update, the Admin do not have to change the leave policy settings for the newly confirmed employee and can continue with the assigned policy settings.
