Changing the incident status of an absence will have the following effects:
Your HR system may be configured to record the number of working hours the absence lasted, in addition to the number of days (rather than replacing the recording of days). This is because in some organisations a ‘day’ may represent different lengths of time in different work patterns, and allows better understanding of reported absence. So if a work pattern is a 7.5hr day, 2 days sickness would be recorded as ‘2’ in the days box, and ’15’ in the hours box. These figures will shown on reports alongside the reported days.
To enable this functionality, navigate to:> > and find the Sickness absence section. Toggle the slider on for the question “Would you like to require all sickness events to be recorded in hours as well as days?”.
Note that, once activated, this setting should be left on to ensure full reporting. If you wish to deactivate the setting, please seek advice from myhrtoolkit support staff.
