Meaning & Definition

Leave accrual

The gradual accumulation of paid time off, such as vacation or sick leave, by an employee over a specified period, typically based on their length of service or time worked. As time passes, employees accumulate leave hours that they can later use for approved absences, promoting work-life balance and employee well-being.
