Learn to address the functionality of religion-specific holidays in SAP Time Management and analyze its impacts in SAP Payroll.
The holiday calendar option in the SAP ERP HCM system is a key configuration aspect in terms of its effect across the system (i.e., on Time Management, Payroll, workforce management, and shift planning). Configuration of company-specific holiday calendars (i.e., movable and immovable holidays, country- and region-specific holidays, as well as religious holidays) is a key aspect of successful SAP time implementation.
Many Asian companies, especially in places such as India, are required to provide days off for certain employees for religion-specific holidays based on their religious specification in the SAP ERP HCM system. I have implemented this time-management requirement in many of my projects. I show how companies can design their holiday calendars to accommodate these religion-specific holidays and create the desired payroll integration.
I am using a case-study format, based on my own implementation experience, to help readers understand the concept and learn how to implement this in the standard SAP time system.
