Vacation tracking


Vacation tracking refers to the systematic recording and monitoring of days off work that an employee is entitled to within a calendar year. This record-keeping is essential to ensure that the employee avails of their designated leave, be it parental leave, annual vacation, or other special leave types, by prevailing labor laws.

Accurate vacation tracking is crucial for various reasons. Firstly, it allows for planning employee absences in a way that minimizes disruptions to the company’s operations. Secondly, it protects employee rights, ensuring they receive their allotted time off. Thirdly, it serves as a tool for monitoring compliance with legal regulations and avoiding potential penalties.

Thanks to modern technology, many companies are replacing traditional paper-based methods of vacation tracking with electronic systems. These systems enable the automation of many processes, such as submitting vacation requests, and their approval, and monitoring available vacation days.
