Annual Leave 2020

All users are reminded to ensure that all annual leave for 2020 has been requested and approved within Business World.  If any annual leave has been taken and not submitted within Business World, please add this now and have this approved retrospectively. 

Please also ensure that you/your line manager action any Annual Leave tasks from 2020 that may still be in workflow. It is important that you clear these outstanding tasks as soon as possible. If these remain outstanding, your carry forward balance and your 2021 entitlement may be incorrect. If you have an annual leave task which has been rejected, you can:

  • ¬≠Resubmit your request to your Line Manager without any changes being made
  • Amend your request before resubmitting it to your Line Manager
  • Withdraw your request

See the guides in the Related Documents section for instructions on how to request, change or cancel leave on Business World. And if you're a manager, how to approve or decline leave requests and run annual leave and absence reports. 


2021 Annual Leave booked this year

Please note that any leave booked in this leave year for 2021 using your remaining 2020 entitlement this will not be deducted from your current balance until January 2021.

Example:  If you have booked 2 days annual leave in 2021 (using your 2020 entitlement) your  balance will not show this deduction until the new leave year. Therefore your 2020 balance will show as 2 days remaining until the end 2020.


Annual Leave Carry Forward (2021 - 2022)

Business World will be updated to allow all employees to carry up to 20 days with an understanding that this has been approved by Line Managers. 

All employees should follow the guidance as set out by HR when carrying leave forward into 2021 or 2022. See the advice for staff about taking or carrying forward annual leave during the coronavirus pandemic.

There is now a COVID-19 category available within Special Leave, for those staff that are self isolating and are unable to work from home.
