Implement LeaveMaster and you will be able to establish a single, streamlined system for applying for leave in your organisation.

Instead of requesting leave using different paper-based or spreadsheet systems, depending on which system their team or department uses, all of your employees will be able to book their holidays using the same fast, automated online system.

This will significantly speed up holiday booking and leave processing in your organisation and will substantially cut the amount of time your line managers and employees spend on holiday administration and paperwork.

Your managers and HR professionals will also be able to keep accurate, up-to-date records of all forms of staff leave and absence and will be able to efficiently manage resources by seeing at-a-glance who has booked holiday in the company and when they are going to be away.

The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) has advised employers that they may be hit with an influx of holiday requests in the run up to the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

According to research conducted by the CIPP, nearly one in six UK employees are planning to book leave in order to watch events during the Olympic Games.

With a large number of employees looking to take time off, the CIPP has warned employers that they may face administrative difficulties trying to process a large volume of holiday requests at the same time and need to make sure they are prepared in advance.

The payroll body has also advised employers that they need to be ready to deal with competing requests for time off and should have a policy in place for staff who want to work irregular hours during the Olympic period.

Implement LeaveMaster in your organisation and you will be able to process holiday requests quickly and accurately.

You will also be able to maintain high levels of productivity and customer service during popular holiday periods by efficiently managing and monitoring employee leave.

Following a new European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling , employees who are ill or injured during a period of annual leave now have the right to re-take their leave a later date, irrespective of when they became sick.

Prior to the ruling, workers who fell ill, or who were injured, while on annual leave were permitted to turn their holiday into sick leave and re-take their annual leave at an alternative date.

Under the new ruling, employees who were already ill or injured before taking annual leave are now also able to re-take the leave at a later date, if their illness or injury continues into the annual leave period.

The UK Government is planning to amend the Working Time Regulations 1998 to incorporate the new ECJ ruling.
