How to ensure that 3 specific national holidays will not be considered as a leave when Consider Holiday is set as 'No' in Absence Counting Method?

Reproducing the Issue

  • Time Type is configured with Duration diaplay according to 'Deduction Quantity'.
  • The Absence Counting Method is also configured with Consider Holidays as 'No'. Please check the KBA 2441360 to understand the working of the Consider Holidays field.

Requirement: 3 national holidays such as 2-OCT , 15-AUG & 26-JAN should not to be selected as a leave while applying for leave in Time Off

For Example -  Employee wants to apply for 5 days leave starting from 29th Sep to 3rd Oct, 2017 wherein 30th sep & 2nd oct are holidays but client doesn't want 2nd Oct to be calculated in leave. Currently based on the setting, it is getting calculated as 5 days. It should be calculated as 4 days only.


This scenario is not currently supported. You cannot have only few holidays not included while applying leave.

The best workaround will be to have a Take Rule to raise an Info/error message which asks the employee to raise leave separately without including the holidays if any of the mandatory holidays are selected.
