Keep in Mind

· Exempt employees must report all absences taken in the month or confirm that no absences were taken using a Monthly Time Off Confirmation.

· Time Approvers have the authority and responsibility to review and approve Monthly Confirmation Reports for any assigned monthly-paid employees.

· Monthly Confirmation Reports should be approved in chronological order. If a previous month’s report has not been submitted, reach out to the worker and request the previous month’s submission before approving current and future month submissions.

· Workday will not prevent the submission of future reports.
