A leave request is a formal procedure and specific opportunity for employees to inquire about paid leave at the workplace with the approval of the management. Important personal commitments, such as health, family and travel matters, are common to all employees, so this leave negotiation process is required.
The formal process usually includes a formal written leave application/leave from the employee to the supervisor/manager. The written is required in sufficient detail to explain the situation to superiors and help the company’s human resources department to formulate its own employee policies and other processes. Employees must provide detailed information about their leave involving their expected leave and return dates. Before making this request, it is best to have a quick formal discussion with their superiors, employees can quote in their request, because their superiors usually approve or reject this request. They also decide whether employees’ holidays are paid or unpaid.

This is a simpler and faster process for employers and employees; Save time-consuming paperwork and lengthy processes, everything becomes fast and direct, and all data/details are located in a centralized location so that they can be referenced when needed. Once there is a new leave application, the manager can be notified directly, and can quickly approve or reject it through the platform, and the approval result will be notified to the employee immediately.
