For most absences in Workday, you will make a request for Time Off (e.g., Sick, Vacation, Personal Holiday, Comp Time).
Information on types of Time Off
Some absences, including those that may qualify for the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Disability Leave, or Parental Leave require both a Leave of Absence (LOA) request and accompanying request for Time Off.
When you are ready to return to work from your Leave of Absence, contact your supervisor to discuss your department’s return-to-work process.
Before your Leave of Absence (LOA), review the Leave of Absence policies for staff and talk with your department.
For many Leaves of Absence, your department will process your Leave of Absence request in Workday on your behalf.
For certain leave types, you can request a LOA directly in Workday.
An important part of managing your Leave of Absence is understanding various types of Leaves of Absence.
