Employees no longer need to go through a lot of bureaucracy and paperwork to request a day off for a medical appointment or their wedding leave.
In Oitchau, employees submit detailed requests through the application, and the Supervisor is notified in real time to approve.
Let's learn how to submit a request:
How to create a request for Leave or Vacation on the computer? First, open your Oitchau site on your computer and click on the Requests menu.
You will have three main categories to select (you can also have the option of Extended Shift, talk to your HR to get more information):
Within the Medical and Other categories are several subcategories, including some custom ones that your company may have created. You can select those that match the absence you want to request.
Click on the Absence & Vacations tab > + New Request:
When selecting, for example, a Medical reason, you will see the following screen:
1. Select the All Day option if you must be absent for a full work day. You can include the corresponding interval, see how many days are listed in Duration, and then proceed to item 4.
2. Start and end days can be handled for general hourly absence. For this type, keep the start and end day and include the interval of hours to be justified.
3. "Apply to previous day" option: This function is triggered for night shift employees. If you, for example, work from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. and need to present your medical certificate for some interval on the same day (up to 11:59 p.m.), you can add the certificate and select the option, meaning this certificate will be associated with the day you started working. The start and end day must be the same, as follows:
4. The subcategory is chosen based on the reason for the absence. If you have any questions about which option to choose, please talk to your company's HR team.
