Changing accrual periods

Before you get started

If you want to change your leave accrual periods (paid leave, comp days, other, etc.) contact Lucca support to cost this service.

Even though our consultants will take charge of this migration, there are some essential elements that you must know beforehand.

Changing the accrual periods for recurring accounts

This procedure must be done well before the changes to your accruals take effect or at the start of a new accrual period.

It will also be necessary to schedule a date with the consultant in charge of this service in order to shut down the access to your Lucca space for a day and a half. This will give them the time to run the necessary procedures without your employees taking leave.

Everything else is handled by Lucca consultants!

In order to be able to assist you in changing the settings, we will need to have the following information:

  • Entity/entities concerned

  • Regulation(s) concerned

  • Number of employees concerned:
