How do I reject leave?

If you’re a leave approver of a department you will receive leave applications from end users. If you are a secondary leave approver of a department you will receive leave applications when the primary approver is on holiday.

Please note, you can be a leave approver of multiple departments.

If you are a leave approver then, you will always receive notifications when a leave application is sent you. Likewise, if enabled you will get system notifications that there is a leave application waiting.

To reject this leave application please follow the below instructions:

  1. Main navigation -> Leave -> Awaiting Approval

Here there should be a list of applications. If there are none, it means there are none waiting for approval.

  1. Please check the following information in the table (in particular leave type, from / to dates, and leave history
  2. If you feel the leave application is inappropriate click Reject

Once you have clicked reject the end user will be notified.

Here are some handy tips:

  • Give a good reason as to why you are rejecting the leave application
  • You may want to query the leave application before
  • Check what their application is i.e. leave type
  • It is a lot easier to digest the information by using ‘Leave Insight’. You can access this by going into actions and clicking ‘Leave Insight’ a modal should popup with information
  • It is useful to check the leave calendar to see the leave application conflicts with other staff
