In less time than it takes to read this newsletter, you can ensure your data is safe.

Update End of Year Leave Balances
It’s no secret, we all love paid vacation. If your employee’s accrued leave is based on a calendar year, now is a great time to review and input the carryover balance for the new year. It’s so quick that in just a few minutes you can view and update all of your employee leave balances.
 
Quick Tip:
Follow these simple steps to quickly update your year-end leave carryover balances.

2015 Holidays
For those of you that like to plan ahead, Virtual TimeClock was made with you in mind. December is a good time to enter the dates for the holidays your employees will receive next year. Once you enter the holiday dates into the TimeClock, they will automatically appear on the employee’s timecard when the pay period arrives. Simply click Add Leave from the administration toolbar.
 
Quick Tip:
A handy calendar of all 2015 U.S. business holidays and 2015 U.S. federal holidays can be found with other time and attendance resources on our website.
