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.
Delegation is a process in Workday that directs tasks from one individual’s inbox to the inbox of another another person with the same assigned Security Role. The purpose of Delegation is to ensure that a Business Process is not delayed due when an Approver is out of the office.
- When tasks are delegated to a person, that person can switch accounts in Workday to perform the tasks on behalf of another user.
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.
With Workday, all paid holidays must be recorded with the “Holiday Taken Time Off” type in order to account for non-productive work hours.
The “Holiday Taken Time Off” needs to be recorded on the actual day of the Holiday.
If the “Holiday Taken Time Off” is not entered, Holiday Credit will accrue.
An important part of managing your Leave of Absence is understanding various types of Leaves of Absence.

Medical Centers Employees
Medical Centers employees report time and make corrections in Kronos.
Time Off must be entered, submitted, and approved prior to the Time Period Lockout in order to receive pay for hours on your normally-scheduled payday for the pay period. The 2017 Paydays Calendar is available here.
Submitted Time Off will automatically route to your designated Time Approver to review and approve.
If you are a Time Off-eligible employee, you can see your accrued Time Off by type and request Time Off in Workday.
Although Time Off can also be entered directly on a Time Worked timesheet (for non-exempt employees), it is recommended that Time Off requests be managed using a Time Off transaction.
Employees who track time will submit Time Worked in Workday.
If you are faculty, a librarian, or academic staff, refer to your unit for questions regarding entering time.
If you are a Medical Centers employee, continue to track and report your time in Kronos.
