Business Context and Use

The Employee Leave Request business object enables the processing of employee leave requests. An request for an absence, made with the employee leave request, can be of the following types:

  • Planned future leave (for example, vacation, time in place of overtime)

  • A leave in the past (for example, sick leave)

  • Other absences, for which employees require manager approval

  • Other absences that employees need to inform their managers about 

  • Absences that employees create where no approval or information step is necessary (depends on the business process)

When a leave request is approved, it is posted and becomes an Employee Time . You can also use this business object if you want to process an existing leave Employee Time . In this case, you use it for actions such as changing or cancelling a leave request that has been already approved.

The available operations are for use in employee self-service applications.
