According to Wikipedia, the definition of accrual is: Accrual of something is, in finance, the adding together of interest or different investments over a period of time. In OfficeClip Time-off module, accruals can keep track of various time-offs your employees use and save as per company policy.
Your employees may belong to various accrual groups. This means your senior employees may be able to acquire more time-off than your new hires. There are also various types of time-off and accruals such as jury duty, family emergency, sabbaticals, etc.
Whenever an employee requests time-off, the system calculates the amount remaining and gives warning to the employee if he/she has used up all the hours in a particular category. Each employee can be set with an accrual policy and the system calculates the amount of time remaining in hours.
Employees can also check their own time-off when requesting them.
Time-Off module is a part of the OfficeClip Web Timesheet. The Time-off module is available at no cost with the Timekeeping software. Let me know if you have questions.
