Benefit Types

Benefit Types provide a classification for non-worked time (such as sick and vacation) that can be allocated to employees. These types can be paid or unpaid, can optionally count toward overtime hours, and can be configured to automatically accrue if configured in the Accruals section.

With the Advanced Benefits Tracking module (IPSBEN), custom benefit types can be created or edited.




Using the left pane Main Menu » Administration, click on: Benefits » Benefit Types
