To record unpaid days off for employees:

  1. Create a Pay Code for the leave type such as Unpaid Time Off.
  2. Make that Pay Code a Benefit Code with a percentage of 0%. This insures no money will be paid out for this code.
  3. Track and post Unpaid Time Off as you would any Employee Sick/Absent Time either directly on the employee time card or through the Batch Post Time Card function.
    Note: Since unpaid time off is something an employee generally would not earn as a benefit you probably don’t need to post Accrued (Earned) Time for this benefit code. Therefore, the “Balance” tab on the Employee Benefits screen would show as a negative balance, because the time is used but never earned.
