Recipe overview

As we all know, ensuring that employees get proper time off and away from work is beneficial not just for their mental health, but their productivity and overall happiness when they’re back at work as well.

So when an employee’s request for time off is denied, it’s important to ensure that the decision is justified. Otherwise, it sets a poor precedent for both the denied employee, and the rest of their team, implying that taking time off is discouraged.

With this Recipe, you can ensure that every denied PTO is properly examined. When a manager denies an employee’s time off request, Rippling will automatically send a notification to your Head of HR, alerting them to the denied request.

Prefer to alert your HR team instead? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the action should be, who it should go to, and more.
