HINT-- Click the Edit Vacation Items button to enter new Vacation items, or change the ones you already have.

Enter the following information for each Vacation Package:

Using Vacation Packages

Assign vacation packages to each employee in the Employee Account.

You can also assign vacation packages as part of a Wage Schedule, if employees get different vacation amounts for different types of work.

When the Goldenseal payroll software writes payroll, it automatically calculates accrued vacation time, and gives time off for any holidays that are within the payroll period.
