Keep in Mind

· Workers can view accruals and the history of time off requests via the Time Off App.

· Paid absences are available to eligible employees according to their accrued times.

· Workday automatically calculates accruals, or earned time off, based on employment history, and these are added to the employee’s account when Payroll finalizes each month. Once the accrual is added, time-off balance will be updated to reflect the number of days available for vacation, personal holidays, and sick time. For more information on time off policies and eligibility, visit the UChicago Intranet.
