Leave types are the specific settings and permissions relating to the different types of leave applicable to your company (such as Vacation, sick, parental, study leave, injury leave, etc..). Each leave type can have its own restrictions.

Leave Type Restrictions
You might have already set up the permissions per leave type, allowing certain employees the rights to request/approve a certain leave type. But you may also restrict a leave type from being available to an employee(s). There are three levels of restrictions:
- Allow by Country;
- Allow by Job Schedule;
- Restrict by Business Unit.
Allow by Country
Here, you will be able to select one or more countries. Doing so will only allow employees whose employment position country is the same as the selected country to book leave. Please note that by not inputting anything in this field, the leave type will be available to all countries (unless other restrictions (read on below) are added, and depending on their permissions).
Allow by Job Schedule
Here, you will be able to select one or more job schedules. Doing so will only allow employees whose current employment position job schedule is the same as the selected job schedule to book leave. Please note that by not inputting anything in this field, the leave type will be available to employees on any type of job schedule (unless other restrictions are added, and depending on their permissions).
Business Unit Restriction
If your account includes more than one Business Unit, you may hide certain Leave types from show for certain business units. For more information on units and business units, click here.
Unlike the country and job schedule settings, by selecting a business unit, you will be restricting employees with that business unit(s) from booking that leave type. Please note that by not ticking any of the business units, the leave type will be available to employees in all business units (unless other restrictions are added, and depending on their permissions).
