You can create multiple paid time-off policies in PayWow. Employees will only be able to request time off according to the policies assigned to them.

Here’s how to set up a Paid Time-Off Policy:


  • Create Policy- Go to Time & Attendance >> Time Off  >> Time Off Policies, and click Create under the appropriate time-off category.


  • Choose Policy Type- If you'd like to limit the number of time-off hours your employees accrue, select "Limited Time Off." If not, choose "Unlimited."


    • If you choose Limited Time Off

      • Set Accrual Method - Select either Fixed or Per Pay period as the accrual method. To learn more about setting an accrual method, click here

      • Set Carryover Limit - Choose whether employees’ unused accrued hours can be carried over to the next year, and specify a carryover limit. You can also set a waiting period that must pass before accrual begins.

      • Set Negative Balances  You can allow a negative balance and set a limit beyond which time off will be considered as loss of pay.


  • Add Employees - Add employees to the policy by checking the box next to the employee's name. Only employees added to the policy will be able to request time off under that policy.

  • Enter Balance Hours - Specify any existing accrued hours of the employees, then click Finish
