Workday configuration guide - intermittent leave and time off

Download Alight's Workday Configuration Guide

You can likely recall a time when an employee had to take a medical leave of absence. And you may have found it was difficult to determine how that time should be recorded in order to accurately reflect the leave. But even before that process starts you need to make sure your Workday tenant is configured to accommodate these requests and those that are needed for future appointments due to the employee’s leave of absence (LoA).

The good news – Workday’s system is unlike any other – and the intermittent leave and time off plans allow for robust functionality and use cases around leave of absence. This Workday configuration guide explores the possibilities and provides step-by-step instructions.
