Personizer: absence management and time tracking for your company

In the following article we will show you how to create a vacation policy in Personizer. We will refer to the following example:

Employee Max Mueller has been working at Vacation AG since January 1, 2022. According to his employment contract, he is entitled to 24 days of vacation per year. On January 1, 2024, a new vacation policy goes into effect, which provides that all employees of Vacation AG will have a vacation entitlement of 28 days per year as of that date. In addition, the vacation policy stipulates that all remaining vacation days from the previous year must be claimed by March 01 of the following year, otherwise they will be forfeited.
