Previously, Academic and HR Partners could only request two types of Leaves: General Request – Becoming a Parent and General Request – Sick/Injured. Now, Academic Partners and HR Partners can request FMLA Leaves of Absence for employees they support; FMLA Leaves can be found in the drop down menu of the Absence Calendar. Please note: If you select one of these Leaves, the Leave will still route via the Request Leave of Absence business process to Academic HR or UWHR for approval as appropriate. Academic HR and UWHR can still update the Leave Type when needed.
This change restores functionality to allow the Academic Partners and HR Partners to fulfill their responsibility to return their employees from FMLA Leaves of Absence. This is a fix to a Known Issue we posted about on July 9, 2018.
