Creating an Unlimited Policy

Follow these steps to create a PTO accrual rule for an unlimited policy:

Navigate to the Labor Admin page.
Click 'Create', then select 'Accrual Rule'.
Enter a rule name for the accrual rule.

Rule names must be unique. 
Select an earning type:
  • Unpaid
  • PTO
  • Sick

Enter an effective start date.

This is the date that the rule will take effect. Employees assigned to this rule will not accrue hours prior to this date.

Click + Add Effective End Date to add an end date to the rule. (Optional)

This is the date that the rule will be deactivated.

If an effective end date is entered, employees assigned to this rule will not accrue hours past this date.
