Cancel placing an employee on leave

You can cancel placing an employee on leave before approving the next payroll cycle. If you pay employees with direct deposit, you cannot cancel offboarding after funds have been withdrawn from your bank account.

To cancel placing an employee on leave after direct deposit funds have been withdrawn, open Mave, Wave’s automated chatbot, and type Correct a payroll. Mave will help collect any relevant details and direct you to the appropriate support. Learn how to open Mave in Get support with Wave.

Before you can cancel placing an employee on leave, you must delete the approved payroll containing the on-leave employee. Learn how to Delete an approved payroll.

        2. Click on the employee’s name.
        3. Click Employment Status.
        4. Click Cancel Leave, then Confirm in the pop-up box.

After canceling the leave, click Payroll > Run Payroll and approve the payroll once more.
