  • Family and Medical Leave

  • Leave Without Pay

  • Maternity Leave

  • Paid Sick Leave

  • Vacation

More time off types can be added in Time & Attendance > Compliance > Time Off Types > +New Time Off Type

Access time off types

Access time off types through Payroll > Payroll Settings > Time Off Types.
