Within Natural HR, time off types are usually prorated for midyear starters. However, there is the option to turn off the prorating feature for individual time off types. This would be particularly beneficial to businesses that offer employees a day off for their birthday. As this is a singular day, prorating this figure could result in employees only being given a fraction of a day.
You can find this option by going to
Administration -> HR -> Time off management -> Time off types
From here, you can add a time off type through the ‘Add’ button. When adding a time off type, one of the fields that is required is the ‘Deduct from employee allowance?’
For time off types that are not to be prorated – such as the previous birthday example – it is important that ‘Yes from individual allowance’ is selected. At this point, another field will appear.
If you select ‘No’, then allowances inputted into the time off type will not be prorated. Click 'Submit' and the time off type has been created.
