Manager can obtain an overview of all leave requests sent. This can be sorted by date, leave type and employee.

Leave balances

Manager can track and edit employee leave balances by leave type (annual leave, sick leave, unpaid leave, maternity leave etc). By default, leave balances are displayed as at the current open payroll period. Filters can be applied during a search. An employee’s leave balance history can also be viewed by clicking on the employee name. Initial employee leave balances are uploaded by the Mercans’ team. Once done, the manager is able to edit employee balances for all leave types.
