Holiday Settings

Zoho People allows you to configure all kinds of holidays for your organization based on your location. Your organization may have branches across various countries. Each country will have different customs and cultures. So, holidays will also differ. In that case, you can add different locations and configure holidays accordingly. You can also configure weekday and weekend holidays for your organization, by week wise. Also, when an employee submit a leave form, the period of leave will be validated against the holidays configured and the system will automatically exclude the request for leave calculation, if the leave falls on a holiday date.
