Can someone have a negative time off balance?

A time off balance can display as negative even if an employer does not allow negative balances.

This occurs when someone makes a time off request for an amount they will accrue by the start of their actual time off period, but is more than their current balance.

Zenefits calculates how much time the worker will accrue by that date and allows them to request the time off, but because they have not accrued this time yet, their balance appears negative.
