What is the difference between a Time Off and a Time Sheet Approver?

The main difference between a Time Off and Time Sheet Approver is as follows:

  • A Time Off Approver approves designated employee requests for time away from work, which can include Personal Time, Vacation, Sick and all other reasons that require an employee to be away from work as scheduled.
  • A Time Sheet Approver checks and approves employee time worked on a daily basis - that is the start & end time, lunch and other breaks, etc.
