Requesting Leave

The payroll team use the information in the portal to pay out all types of leave.

Even if you put your leave information on your timesheet this is no longer enough to ensure you get paid.  You must apply for the leave through the portal because your timesheet is no longer seen by payroll.   If you forget to complete the information in the portal you may find that your leave payment is missed or delayed.  Don’t expect your manager to be able to enter the information for you - legally your manager does not have the authority to do this for you

As soon as you request leave through the portal, an automatic request is sent to your direct manager for authorisation.  Once the decision has been made you will receive an email back.

There are several type of leave you can apply for through Ipayroll

  • Annual Leave,
  • Alternative Leave (leave accrued when working on public holidays – no longer called Time in Lieu)
  • Bereavement Leave
  • Leave without pay

If you want to request leave

  1. From the dashboard click Request Leave


2.    Fill in the leave request form


  • Leave Type: Annual, sick bereavement etc.
  • First Day: First day your leave will begin
  • Last Day: Last day you will be on leave
  • Reason: Type a reason why you are taking leave
  • Number of Hours: Total number of hours requested of leave

3.     Click Request leave

Annual Leave


Sick Leave

If you have been away sick, it is your responsibility to enter the sick days through the portal as soon as you are able to do so.  As with annual leave, your manager does not have authority to do this for you. 

If you don’t have any sick leave left you are able to request that your annual leave balance be transferred to cover the sick days.

To do this you apply for annual leave but in the “reason” there must be a notation No sick leave balance, please transfer.

Updating Personal Details

Using the My Profile tab, change your details so required.  This is particularly helpful for payroll so that in an emergency we can get in touch with you and/or your family quickly.
