Process leave year end activities manually

Updated in February- 2024 | Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Leave year end (LYE) refers to the conclusion of a designated period during which an employee's accrued leave is assessed and reset. Processing leave year end is essential for maintaining accurate leave records, evaluating leave balances, and preparing for the upcoming year.

The leave year end enables organizations to effectively manage employee time off, ensure compliance with policies, and promote a fair and balanced allocation of leave throughout the workforce. It ensures that all the leave-related activities, such as lapses, encashments, and carry-forward balances, are settled before the next leave year begins. 

The Year End Process page in the greytHR Admin portal enables you to execute the leave year-end process manually. You can also opt for automatic processing. To view the Year End Process page, click Leave > Admin > Year End Process.

Watch the following video for absolute clarity:

The page displays the following tabs:

  • Pending Application - The tab displays a list of all the pending leave applications. 

  • Year End Policy - The tab displays the list of policies associated with the leave year end.

  • Manual Process - The tab displays a list of batches you have processed. Each batch contains the list of employees, balance, encashed, lapsed, and closing leave balance details. 

You can perform the following actions on the Year End Process page:

  1. Clear pending leave applications.
