Force early return from holidays

In the event that too many holiday weeks have been applied to a weekly paid employee's payslip, the 'force early return from holidays' utility facilitates the re-instating of an employee in a pay period which has previously been marked as a holiday week in error.

This utility can be accessed within Utilities > Force early return from holidays

  • Select the employee who you wish to re-instate using the drop down menu

  • Click Force early return

  • At the prompt, enter the word CONFIRM to force an early return for the employee. Click OK



The employee's holiday week(s) will now be reset and the employee will now be available for processing in the current pay period.

Please note: this utility should only be used in exceptional circumstances and where there is no other option available. Forcing an early return can result in an overstatement of insurable weeks and incorrect PRSI calculations. It may also result in tax being underpaid, if the employee is on a Week One basis.
