Keep in Mind

· When you approve an absence, the worker’s schedule is automatically adjusted to show the absence.

· Employees can:

· Combine balances and request time off on any position

· Request time off in increments of one-half hour (0.5 hour)

· Request to use the accrual balance transfer process by completing the Paid Sick Leave Accrual Transfer form in the Services Portal

· Employees cannot have a negative accrual; the minimum accrual amount is 0.

· For exempt employees, only full day absences should be reported.

· Be aware of the Effective Date; Time Off balances will only include requests from the past (prior to the Effective Date indicated).

· Use the Time Off Details report in Workday to view a worker’s accruals by Pay Period.
