Overview

This article explains how to delete an obsolete vacation or sick leave policy.

Details

To delete a vacation/sick pay policy, there should be no employees assigned to it. Also, before proceeding, please be aware of the following:

  • You should never delete a vacation policy that was used in the past unless you have made the customer fully aware that by doing so, they will lose vacation accrual and balance data from any pay stubs issued under the said policy.
  • You will lose the vacation and/or sick leave policy report for that employee and cannot retrieve it at any time.
  • You will lose accruals, balances, and hours used (this will affect prior pay stubs).
