Yes, you can use a timesheet template for tracking both leave and vacation days. To do so, distinguish leave days from regular working days by including the total number of hours taken as leave under the dedicated leave or vacation column.
This allows you to have a comprehensive record of both work hours and time off in a single document. You can also customize the template to include categories for different types of leave, such as annual leave, sick leave, or personal leave.
We also recommend consulting with legal and HR professionals to ensure compliance with local requirements for recording and tracking leave days in New Zealand.
