Example sentence(s):
  • The Work hour balance is the difference between the number of work hours entered and the Daily hours specified on an employee's Work contract.... The balance can be positive (green), negative (red) or null (black).
  • Employees get sick, have emergencies, or need days off from time to time. That's expected. What isn't acceptable is an employee no-show.
