“We had grown very quickly from 8 employees to more than 20 and we just wanted an easier way to record holidays, sickness etc, than simply keeping a spreadsheet for each HR item!”

Frequently Asked Questions about HRLocker

Why would someone use timesheet software?

An all-in-one HR software solution like HRLocker provides simple automated solutions for your timesheet processes. As well as gaining insights into team performance, tools that automate manual tasks like calculating and allocating time off in lieu (TOIL) let you focus on more exciting HR responsibilities, like employee engagement and improving productivity.

What happens to my Annual Leave when I'm off sick?

Your statutory entitlement to annual leave continues to build up when you are on sick leave if you have a medical certificate.

What’s the best way to calculate and manage time off in lieu (TOIL)?

The best way to calculate and manage TOIL is with a specialised HR tool. For example, HRLocker automatically calculates and allocates employees’ TOIL so you don’t have to manually sort through logged hours and leave calendars.

Can I "Carry Over" Annual Leave to the next year?

Annual leave should be taken within the leave year. Depending on your employer, you can agree to take your annual leave within 6 months of the relevant leave year.

Any further carrying-over of annual leave would need to be agreed upon between you and your employer.
