New: Half Day Leave Request Functionality


You asked, we answered. Half Day Leave Requests have been rolled out into the PayrollHero Leave Management add on.

Now you can enable the half day leave request in your settings so that employees can use 50% of a sick day. Perfect for doctors appointments or personal time when employees need it.

Applying for a half day leave is the same as applying for a regular leave except the half day leave option is only available for 1 day leave requests. If the start and end date of the leave request do not match then you will not be able to apply for half day leave. The only difference is that you will need to choose if you want to take the first half of the day or the second half of the day off.

Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحىʿīd al-aḍḥā [ʕiːd ælˈʔɑdˤħæ] meaning “Festival of the sacrifice”), also called the Feast of the Sacrifice (Turkish: Kurban Bayramı; Bosnian: Kurban Bajram; Persian: عید قربان‎, Eid-e qorban), the “Major Festival”,[1] the “Greater Eid“, Baqr’Eid (Urdu: بقر عید‎), or Tabaski (West Africa), is the second of two religious holidays celebrated by Muslimsworldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his promised son, Ishmael (Ismail)a, as an act of submission to God’s command, before God then intervened, through His angel Gabriel (Jibra’il) and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted. The meat from the sacrificed animal is preferred to be divided into three parts. The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.” *wikipedia
