Holidays and non-working days defined in the holiday calendar and work schedule are not marked in the calendars

Cause

Behavior only occurs when Time Off for Leave of Absence Only feature is active, which means that both Time Off and Time Off for Leave of Absence Only switch are enabled in the system. As Leave of Absence Only feature does not consider or respect the holiday calendar and work schedule, holidays and non-working days will not be marked on the calendars of Time Off ESS page.

1. Navigate to Admin Center > Tool SearchManage Employee Central Settings.
2. Under Time and Attendance Management, switch off Time Off for Leave of Absence Only > Save.

Calendars of Time Off ESS page should now display the non-working days and holidays.
