2755104 - Time Sheet Is Split When User Is On Leave of Absence


  • When a user is on a Leave of absence (Requested via Time off UI) their employee status changes to "Paid Leave". This is as per the Event Reason > Employee Status configuration.
  • The absence is on a Wednesday, returning to work the following day (singe day absence).
  • Navigate to the Timesheet UI and there are 3 timesheets for that week.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Timesheet UI after requesting a single day LOA with return date
  2. There are 3 timesheets for that week:
  • One for the Monday and Tuesday
  • One for the Wednesday (LOA day)
  • One for the remainder of the week Thursday - Sunday


This is expected behaviour.


  • Each job Information change (created by LOA) triggers the creation of an additional Time Sheet, which is starting on that change/effective date. 
  • On the other hand it is unusual to use LOA for a one-day absence, which can cause this split of the timesheet for one week.The intention of LOA is a longer absence like maternity leave, military service etc.
  • In that case, those weeks of LOA which include a change of employee status are grayed out in timesheet UI.
