The LWOP transaction allows you to record periods of Leave Without Pay for a person.
To enter LWOP:
- Go to the person's timesheet.
- Enter the number of hours to Pay in the Quantity field.
- Select LWOP from the list, and press the Add button.
- Enter the date and reason that the leave was taken and press the Save Changes button.
Note: When recording Leave Without Pay, you may also have to adjust the number of Ordinary Time hours (T1) on the person's timesheet to have the correct pay calculated - see below.
Recording Leave without Pay is optional -- you can achieve the same pay by just reducing the time recorded on the person's timesheet. The advantages of recording Leave without Pay are that you have a complete record of all absences in the person's Leave History, and that the person receives a more explanatory payslip.
Reducing Ordinary Time Worked
If a person has a Timesheet Template containing their ordinary time, it can be tedious to reduce their time whenever leave is entered. To avoid this, select () the Reduce Ordinary Time (T1)? option when entering the leave details, and the person's Ordinary Time will be automatically reduced by the amount of leave taken.
Note: This option is selected by default for people with ordinary time on their Timesheet Template. If you enter the actual hours worked each pay you probably won't use this option, and it won't be automatically selected. You can always select or de-select this option as needed.
