Comp Off (also known as Compensatory Off) facilitate compensating employees by granting leaves in lieu of working on a holiday or weekly off.
There are cases when an employee is required to work on a holiday or a weekly off like Saturday or Sunday. In such cases, it is a common practice to grant a leave credit to the employee in exchange of the work done on the holiday or week off. This leave credit can be used by the employee to take a day off on some other working day.
To enable Comp Offs in Runtime HRMS, we need to configure some settings. Go to Setup > Employee Self Service and look for section named 'Comp Off Request Approval' as shown below.
The employees can apply for comp-off using Workman (employee self-service mobile app), in case they have worked on a week off or a holiday. This request requires approval by the authority as defined in the settings above.
To submit a comp off request, open the hamburger menu and tap on 'Requests'. Select 'Comp Off' icon to open then new request page. Select date, Select 'Comp Off' in the Leave Type dropdown, select whether it is a full-day comp off or half-day comp off, enter comments and submit. The approver will get a notification that a new comp off request has been submitted on their app.
Open the hamburger menu and tap on 'Team & Approvals'. Select 'Comp Off' icon to open pending requests. For every request, you will see 'Approve' and 'Reject' buttons. Take the action as necessary. Enter your comments and save. The requestor will get a notification about the action taken.
Runtime HRMS also allows you to automatically grant Comp Off in case an employee has worked on a week off or holiday. To access these settings, go to Setup > Leaves & Attendance > Leave Types. Click on 'Comp Off Rules' tab.
If you wish to grant a comp off automatically when an employee is present on Week Off, check the 'Auto-Grant Comp Off for Week Off Working'. Similarly, for holidays, check 'Auto-Grant Comp Off for Holiday Working'.
There are two settings for granting automatic comp off for week off and holiday working.
Put the minimum number of minutes an employee should be present in office for half-day and full-day comp off.
Let's understand this with an example.
Setting: Half Day Minutes: 320 and Full Day Minutes: 640
Now, the auto-grant of comp off based on employee's time in-office will work as follows:
0 to 320 minutes: No comp off will be given
321 to 640 minutes: Half-Day comp off will be given
641 or above minutes: Full-Day comp off will be given
