If you have a “use it or lose it” policy regarding benefit hours like vacation or sick time you may wish to zero out any unused hours that expire at the end of the year.

  1. To zero out benefit hours go to the Earned tab on the Employee Benefits screen.
  2. Enter the Date as Dec. 31st of last year.
  3. Enter the Hours as a negative amount. For example, if they had 10 unused hours enter it as -10.
  4. Use the appropriate Pay Code (Benefit Code), like “Vacation”, and a Comment like “Unused Hours Expired”.
