Absence Management

Absence Management allows you to request leave and receive electronic approval for your requests. Once your leave request has been submitted, it will be routed to your supervisor (manager) for approval. After your supervisor has approved the request, the leave hours will be held and used for payroll calculation and leave processing.  If you do not have a sufficient leave balance* during the calculation process, the leave will be reduced or not processed and this may reduce pay and accruals. (*Leave without pay request are not subject to balance checking.)

Hourly regular employees submit leave without pay requests on the timesheet or the supervisor enters for those who use clock methods for reporting time.  

A delegate may be assigned to approve leave requested in the absence of a supervisor.  If your supervisor denies or pushes back the absence, you may edit and resubmit or cancel.  See Absence Request for details.
