Absence Management

Absence Management is used to request and/or report leave taken or cancel an existing request in HR/Pay under the Time and Absence tile. Upon submission of the request, the workflow approval process will be initiated. After the approval the leave hours will used for appropriate payroll calculation and leave processing.  If there is not a sufficient leave balance* during the calculation process, the leave will be reduced or not processed and this may reduce pay and accruals. (*There are not balances for all leave request such as leave without pay or those with limited usage e.g. voting etc.)

Hourly regular employees may access Absence Request from their timesheet as well.

If the approver denies or pushes back the absence, the employee may edit and resubmit or cancel.  Employees may initiate an absence cancel which allows editing and resubmission. See the Absence Management guide for details.

Absence balances and absence history are also available under this Time and Absence tile. Supervisor's can view under the Team Time and Absence tile.
