NZ Payroll - Parental Leave

Started by Frances Harris -   in NZ Payroll

I'm trying to follow these instructions for setting up Parental Leave for an employee;


Point 4 says to "Complete the fields:
Leave - Depending on your employee’s request, select Parental Leave - Primary Carer, Parental Leave - Partner, Parental Leave - Special, or Parental Leave - Extended."

When I try and assign leave type, I have none of the above options - only Annual Leave - Parental. I can't find any instructions on setting up the various Parental Leave types for NZ Payroll.

Any help much appreciated!

Hi Frances, these leave types will usually be set up by default however it sounds like someone with Payroll Admin permission may have removed them. You can set these up again using the help in this article. Once set these options will appear when trying to assign the leave type. Just come into the team at Support if you need a spot more help :)
