How does unpaid time off work?

When you submit a time off request you can indicate that you would like it to be unpaid. Your approver will confirm if the time off is unpaid or not.

We need to know if time off is unpaid for two reasons.

Firstly, unpaid time off is not deducted from the relevant allowance. E.g. if your annual leave balance is 2 days and you take 5 days unpaid annual leave, your annual leave balance remains 2 days.

Secondly, you do not accrue additional leave during unpaid time off. E.g if your annual leave balance is 1.1 days at the start of 10 days unpaid annual leave, it will still be 1.1 days in the end.
