This article explains how Global Payroll employees can request time-off on Deel if their client has enabled Deel HR.
Your client may have created a customized time-off policy for workers, including a customized annual allowance of days, customized accrual period, and special time-off request options.
If your client uses an external provider for Time-Off services, you will need to request time off via that provider and not through Deel's platform.
Official public holidays in your country of employment will be automatically updated. Requests for time-off on a public holiday will not be subtracted from the annual allowance.
