Here the available balance is shown as 29.50 days for Sickness - company leave type


Employee Central - Time off


  • In this particular example, the employee gets 15 days sickness leave every year
  • Period end processing (PEP) rule was run to close the account for last year
  • however, the balance for last year was not made zero and hence the current balance is shown as sum of last year and current year balance. i.e.15+14.9=29.50


  • As a best practive always carry forward the allowed balance as per policy to next year account
  • Make the last year balance as zero by consciously negating the balance in the PEP rule (the steps are available in EC time-off implementation guide)
  • Close the account for previous year
