I am facing the following issue with part day leave when using the ESS leave request.
Employees at my company work flexitime i.e. they can start work anytime between 7:00am and 9:30am and they can finish anytime between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. The employees all have a standard work schedule 8:00am to 3:00pm, Monday to Friday.
The problem occurs when the employee attempts to enter part day leave outside of their work schedule. If the employee arrives at work at 9:30, works for 3 hours, has a 1 hour lunch and then gets sick, they are required (company rules) to take part day leave for 4 hours, 1:30pm - 5:30pm. Unfortunately, when they enter these times, the system automatically changes the end time to match their work schedule 3:00pm and only deducts 1.5 hours from their sick leave quota.
Is there any way that the system can be configured to accept times outside of the employees' normal work schedule?
