How to view subordinate’s attendance?


  • Annual leave (AL) entitlement is calculated on proportionate basis. Therefore, there is no provision for Advance Annual Leave.
  • Permanent staff is allowed to accumulate balance of his/her annual leave which he/she is entitled to for a period of two (2) years service to the third year of his/her service. The leave for the first year will be forfeited if such leave is not utilised by the end of the third year.
  • Staff can apply AL 3 days before the actual date of annual leave using available online system (HURIS).
  • For application less than three (3) days, the leave will be considered as unplanned leave and annual leave will be deducted accordingly.
  • For unplanned leave and in the case of unavailability of annual leave, it will become AWOL and salary will be deducted.
