As an employer we have a duty of care Working Time Directive requirements – minimum leave taken Ensure that all required parties are aware of leave and can plan around this to deliver the required services

6 Absence Recording – Current Situation
Largely paper-based Inconsistent recording Confusion about appropriate entitlements Significant time spent using the annual leave calculator

7 Electronic Absence Recording - iTrent
Employees (via Employee Self Service) View Holiday entitlement (automatically calculated by i-Trent) View Holiday dates: taken, scheduled and remaining balances Request Holiday Close a sickness absence electronically (no paper SC1) View their own sickness dates View calendar of colleagues (subject to set up by their manager) Managers (via Manager Self Service) Authorise Holiday requests (no more holiday cards & spreadsheets) Absences all recorded and accessible electronically Open a sickness absence electronically

Hours of leave updated confirmation to Member of Staff Line Manager accepts or rejects leave request using MSS Request Workflows to Line Manager (+ ) Member of Staff Requests Annual Leave (or TOIL) using ESS PE & BK

9 Annual Leave Calculation & Booking
iTrent will calculate annual leave in hours based on your working pattern – provided that this is up-to-date Staff request leave by dates (including a part-day) – iTrent will calculate the hours “lost” and take them off their total. When requesting annual leave (or TOIL) the member of staff must request the proportion of the day that they are taking. Line managers must check that this is correct before they authorise.

10 i-Trent Principles - Holiday
i-Trent will automatically calculate your Holiday Entitlement based upon your grade and length of service Your holiday entitlement is made up of Annual Leave + Bank Holidays + Discretionary Days + Carry Over Holiday entitlement will be calculated in hours System configuration will require the input of working patterns, which show how your contracted hours are split across the days of the working week Examples Full-time/Part-time Contracted Hours Working days Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Sat Sun Full-time 36.5 Monday to Friday 7:18 0:00 Part-time 18 Monday to Wednesday 6:00
