Adding a Floating Holiday

This article describes how a floating holiday can be added to your TimeIPS system. Floating holidays, once created, are manually applied on an as-needed basis.

Security Level Required: Payroll Administrator

Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Benefits and Accruals » Holidays

The Holiday Set-Up Screen

To Add a Floating Holiday:

  1. Enter the Holiday Name, Duration, Holiday observed on date, and Qualifying Payroll Types.
    TIP: Holiday Name, Duration, Holiday observed on, and Qualifying Payroll Types are mandatory fields and must contain data, however only the Holiday Name must be valid. This benefit will be manually applied for each employee and the date and duration will be set at that time.

    NOTE: The Prorate based on Scheduled Hours vs. 40hrs?, Waiting Period, and Adjacent Days Required fields do not require any changes, as they will not be enforced when the holiday is manually applied.
  2. Click on the Create Holiday button. The new holiday will be added to the Existing Holidays list.
